Every year I put together some sort of running workout that incorporates my age into the reps, the time, etc. of the workout. It's a way of grounding myself in gratitude for what my body can do as it naturally ages. Being 25 weeks pregnant on my birthday this year, I let my husband choose the workout for me (no joke, my creativity is zapped when I'm pregnant).
He kept me moving with 34 Tabatas of running, sprints, and lunges while pushing my toddler in the jogger, per usual. I've definitely slowed down, but on those days when I can drag myself and Braxton out of the house it so worth the mental and physical reward (if not a little painful on my loosening ligaments).
What birthday tradition could you implement as a practice in gratitude?
