I totally forgot to do one of these last month. Oops. That’s my bad.
Hahaha but in all fairness, I was out of town and pretty busy doing stuff with family for Easter. 😉 Anyways, lets get right to it, shall we?
Not bad! Not bad at all!! It’s been like, a crazy long time, but I feel like I’ve actually been accomplishing something this month. I’ve been in kind of a rut for a lot longer than I’d like to admit when it comes to running, but I’m pretty sure I’ve been making progress with putting that all behind me this month and I Got. Shit. Done! Yay me!!
I feel like the whole running 2 half marathons in 2 days thing that I’m going to be attempting to do in November (which you can read more about here and here. 😉 ) was exactly the kick in the ass that I needed to shut up and start putting in the real work again. Now the real question is will I be able to keep this up until then? So far I’m thinking I will! I mean, I’m kinda gonna have to now that I’ve got a big, crazy goal that I want to accomplish. Plus it helps that my dad also has a big, crazy goal that he’s working toward; his first half marathon! He’s going to be doing the second half marathon that I’m doing with me! 🙂 And he’s totally killing it!! We’ve been texting each other non stop about how our training runs are going, so just having someone I can do things like that with is definitely helping my situation, and I imagine it will continue to do so as we both get farther into our training. 🙂
Now then, onto the goals that I set for myself at the beginning of the year!
Okey dokey, so I’ve been crushing my step goal! The plan has been to walk 10,000 steps most days. I didn’t set out to walk 10,000 steps everyday because I knew there would be no way I could get that done. I need a full day off from everything every once in a while. Still though, I did really well with it in April. 🙂
And of course my other main goal was to write in my training journal everyday and include at least one good thing that’s happened in every entry. And I was doing really well with that up until about a week and a half ago haha. I just kinda forgot about it a few times and it’s spiraled out of control since then. 😉 But now that I’ve reminded myself that it’s something that I wanted to do this year, I’m gonna go fill it out right now. 🙂
I feel like I’ve had a really good month and I’m super excited to see what I can accomplish this month. Happy first day of May!!
Until next time,
