What can I say, I’ve been so busy not running that I haven’t had time to write!
Let me provide an update on those new year resolutions I talked about last month.
- Do at least 20 minutes of strength and core each day – I’ve altered this goal. Because, see below.
- Join the YMCA before February – YES! I am now an official member which has become so convenient because I live right in the middle between two Y locations so I feel like I have a lot of options. I’ve become a slave to the elliptical and have gone to quite a few yoga classes. Today I went to my first Pilates class and hopefully I will make my way back to the pool again. (The pool has been so crowded so I haven’t quite figured out an ideal time to workout there). So, on days when I go to the gym, I do not adhere to my “20 minutes of strength/core” rule. If I don’t go to the gym, I definitely do a workout at home for at least 20 minutes.
- Continue journaling – Check!
- Read one book a month – Shocking but (so far) I am on top of this goal. What am I reading? January’s book was Lauren Graham’s Talking as Fast as I can and currently I am reading Hidden Figures. Yes, so far I am only reading books that have been a movie or has been written by someone who stars in movies and TV … but, books are books are books, right??
So, a month-and-a-half into the year and things are going well! (Or, as well as they can be while you are sidelined from running).
