Motivational Tip — Keeping Up the Pace

Posted Jun 23 2009 4:51pm

door county A great thing happened last week–we were on a much-needed vacation. Door County, Wisconsin was our destination. It’s a quiet, idyllic place that until this year, had poor cell coverage. That’s something of a blessing if you truly want to get away.

During our vacation, we walked and biked a great deal. The park we camped at had plenty of trails. We took the time to do a lot of geocaching and hiking. Some of the hikes were challenging. I don’t mind saying that I traveled outside of my comfort zone more than once. My husband is an excellent coach.

How much walking? Just about every single day during our 10-day stay, we logged 10,000+ steps. Many days were over 13,000 steps. There was even an exhausting 18,000-step day. We both felt great. I may even have lost a pound or two. With such momentum behind us, our goal now is to keep it up. Our bodies are accustomed to the pace. It’s only a matter of taking those steps.

That’s the great thing about a vacation. You forget the doubts holding you back. Perhaps you take some chances like I did, doing a bit of rock climbing. If you can build the foundation, run with it. Keep up the pace.
