I’ve decided to try a little positive reinforcement in my insane attempt to run a half marathon.
Now, given that I am an English teacher, I understand the concept of diction, that is word choice. “Run” a half marathon does not really communicate my exercise capacity; there is no way I could run something that long. The term I prefer is wog, a combination of walk and jog. It was coined by my sister-friend, Natalie. Mil gracias!
So, in my process of training for the half marathon, I’ve given myself the reward of a new downloaded song for my itunes every time I go to the gym 3 times. Better said, every 3 completed workouts, gym or out and about the town, and I get to buy a new song.
My first song purchase was “Rolling in the Deep” by Adele. I love this song!! And I’m taking more suggestions. So, don’t be shy.
