Monday's Motivation to Move: to cardio or not?!


Apparently this morning when I went to turn off my alarm I inadvertently took a photo shot of my alarm going off!
When I started to look for the picture I was going to add for todays posting on Motivational Movement I realized I wanted to share it.  I have been listening to podcasts with ...

His story is amazing!   Which got me to thinking that I, yes, need sleep....but what I really need to be doing is getting to bed earlier because I REALLY REALLY REALLY love getting up early.  I accomplish so much more....I feel so refreshed...and alive!  Thus this last week I bumped my waking time back to 5 in the AM....like it was several years ago.....and I have totally loved it!   Now I'm not saying there may be a season where sleeping to 6 again is going to be necessary but I truly understand sleep in such a better way than I ever did before, that I KNOW that I will not sacrifice my bodies need for sleep on a consistent, regular basis.  But, that will be a posting for another day :).....
TODAY....
I want to share about cardio....about walking....about running....

This podcast from BODY DO OVER  (follow the link in the highlight to check it out).....is great in that it really helps a person understand what is true cardio and what is a "rat on a spinning wheel"....which is what many think is healthy, or think it is cardio...but instead is truly creating havoc in their bodies!

When I cut back my running last year I started to not only feel the great restorative effects of backing off and actually stopping for a good period of time.  Now that I am running again, with great moderation,  I have seen great improvement in my strenght and my speed time.

There are so many great Walk/Run workouts, sprint work, etc....and with greater results without the cortisol release.....

Heck take a look at the pictures of the Prevention book I have here on this posting....it gives a really great way to interval your walk/run and feel great.  What is even better when you do interval workouts...it is a shorter time....with better benefits!  Who doesn't want to save time!

My next posting on Motivation Movement I will share more on what my weeks workouts look like!
Til then....have a fabulous week!
hugs and blessings always,
~K :)
