This may come as a surprise to some of you reading this morning that, Yes there is a kinder gentler side here at CultFit. Over the past few years “our” clients detached from the inter-webz and social media have taken part in a rather old-fashioned means of communication, postcards! And finally due to much coaxing from these other member’s we have decided to present it to you!
Random Motivational Postcards for One Year!!! (Must clicky on this one!!!)
Miraculously you can actually feel and hold a postcard, pick it up and flick it around. You can even put them in the spokes on your new $2500 bike that was ridden once last year. All kidding aside this is pretty cool in our book and helps out a few people in a tough spot either in training or getting motivated to run a marathon for the first time. If you feel like this is something you would like or would like to share with a friend or family member? Please take the time to pass it on!!!
**1976…Hmm. Sums up our lives today pretty well?!? The fun starts at 1:35…**
As we start to spend more time outdoors this spring take the time to look around you for some ladybugs! Our good mates at the Lost Ladybug Project desperately need each and every one of you reading today to help out. Face it, you never leave the house without your iThingy to take precious little photos of yourself after a hard 2 mile run…How about not worrying about your image for a bit and looking around yourself for some friendly little critters!?!
Warm Up Thoroughly and certainly Not For Time…
Pulled from the “Honest Effort” archives here at CultFit HQ:
75-80% Max Effort Hill Sprints followed by:
20 Perfect Push Ups (At the top before you head back down)
By all means feel free to play with the rep range with the Push Ups. Meaning, ideally we would like 200-300 Push Ups today although that is a lot of hill sprints. Try to find a balance this morning that works for you and pushes you a tad…As an example: Sister Mel performed 10 Hill Sprints and 30 Perfect Push Ups…
The Lost Ladybug Project is super-duper importante to us here and we implore you to help out! Be safe today during the program and by all means ENJOY!!!
I absolutely love the postcard idea. You’re awesome for doing that. ♥
Thanks so much!
Super plan for today, reminds me I haven’t done hill sprint in ages! Must find me a hill! Motivational postcards sound lovely 🙂
Thank you! Finding the right balance with the program today is tricky and takes some playing around with. We know how to go all out although scaling back and working within a set effort range can be challenging.
As always…the pictures are fabulous. But this time it was the $2,500 bike only riden once that got me.
I like to say…”It’s funny because it’s true!” Enjoy the rest of your day and be well!!!
Great idea, I Love the toddler and doggie picture lol 😀
Love the quote at the top, and the photo of the mirror image, love/hate! Great job!
Argghhh hills…yes I should do them, I’m avoiding them like the plague…fine, I’ll add them to my workouts this week 🙂
Actually contemplated on getting a husky, I could do some long runs with. But they’re sold out… so need to find other company for the great outdoor…
hate… I mean… love this shirt! 🙂
The last photo is very haunting; it’s message is brutally honest.
Thank you! Hinting around a touchy subject does not bring us any closer to actually addressing it head on…”Gentle” smacks upside the head seem to work on occasion.
