I received this in an email from MapMyRun the other day:
Apparently, in the last few years that I’ve been “tracking” my workouts (although not all of them) I’ve now achieved 1000 workouts. I think that I probably “workout” about 1000 times/year between teaching and other things. I don’t always count those things, but I’m trying to get better (this year) about actually marking down what I do and scheduling time to do it. I’ve even considered buying a fitness tracker, but mostly I still think that I get by just fine with my Timex.
This email came at an important time for me. I’m still trying to get back into a consistent routine of training again after the holidays. The semester has started back and the weather is getting better. I’m back doing sun salutations now that my leg is healed. And, just this last week, my oldest turned 7!
It all put me in the mood to make some resolutions…..but only some vaguely simple ones:
- Do the 10K in March that I’ve been planning to do for months…even though I’m not signed up and I haven’t done that many consistent runs in the last two months.
- Have a girls’ night out on every odd month this year to keep my sanity and attempt to get out of the house now and then.
- Keep up the pedicures.
- Do the 15K in September that I didn’t get to do a few years ago.
- Complete the 2018 MapMyRun Challenge for the first time EVER!
- Keep journaling.
- Don’t give up on myself.
This is close to the time of year when everyone gives up on their resolutions, so it’s only fitting, with as backward as I am sometimes, that I’m just now setting mine.
What about you?
