The best time to take up a new physical activity is in the WINTER when it is very dark, cold, wet and gross outside. Did I mention that there has been an abnormal amount of snow lately? Great time to start my new hobby of Running right??!! Lucky for me, we have a treadmill so I was able to get started the next day. I set my alarm for an hour earlier to make sure that my first 30 minute run would end in time for me to get ready for work.
And off I went...
This year I'm actually at a bit of a crossroads. For two years(ish) now I've had dates circled on the calendar. A "goal date" as it were. I had a dialed in training plan. I lived my life by a schedule (and I mean life, not just training life). I was regimented and consistent and accomplished everything I wanted to.
I have no ambition to race back to the store and buy fancy running accessories. I am not even training to run a marathon. I am just a girl that was abused by a fellow co-worker while he trained to be a Super Star Ironman Dick of the year, learning how to tie my shoes in this world of stinky sweaty gross people that run
With 2017 firmly underway, I have been painstakingly attempting to finalize some race and health goals this year. OK. Who am I kidding, I've been procrastinating like crazy.
I’ve never really been a planner or, come to think of it, someone who really did the whole “goal” thing – think about it, write it down, execute, blah blah blah blah.
