Redefine the Female Athlete with Under Armour
I’ve mentioned before that this competition has turned out to be so much more than a sponsored campaign, from creating a vision board that will sit on my desk long after the competition has ended to the inspiration of the athletes that will continue to inspire and a series of blog posts that leave a lasting impression and something to think about. This competition will end with anticipation for joining again next year.
Last weekend I accomplished my What’s Beautiful goal race and I can say, without a doubt, it was one of the most amazing running experiences ever! I shared the recap here, Running a Team Event. Not an Individual Race.
What’s next? I have decided on a What’s Beautiful goal #2. I don’t remember the exact number but when I completed 90 days of P90X I could do more push-ups than ever before. Then, when I completed P90X2 I was able to do 5 4-medicine ball push-ups (You Tube Video). It didn’t take long to learn that both of those accomplishments can only be maintained if you, of course, do push-ups regularly. No, I’m not going to do P90X again (yet) but what I will….
Within 30 days I will do 20 regular push-ups and progress to 10 medicine ball push-ups.
I will declare a goal and CRUSH IT!
Why this goal?
- I wanted a non-running goal that could be accomplished with training for my next goal race.
- Every time I look at the 4 medicine balls in my workout room I tell myself you bought them. Now, use them.
- I went from totally avoiding push ups to it being a favorite part of my workout.
- Honestly, being able to do the medicine ball push-ups made me feel like a bada$$!
