Goal: Train for and run the quarter marathon at Cap City and the half-marathon at Nationwide.
Status: Cap City COMPLETE! Full race recap to come! I have already chosen at least two other races for the next couple of months as well. I’ve got race fever! I am still hoping to do the half in October, but I’d like to know that I can actually do it before I register. Walking part of 6.55 is one thing, but 13.1 is another.
Goal: Strength train 3x a week.
Status: As of last week, I was told by my physical therapist I could slowly get back into some “gentle gym time.” I’m hoping to go either tomorrow or Wednesday.
Goal: Regularly donate to charity and start volunteering.
Status: Did my first volunteering activity at Planned Parenthood!
Goal: Write every day.
Status: Completely neglected except for what you see here. Ugh.
Goal: Read at least one book a month.
Status: Slowed down on the reading trend. Happened across Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail by Cheryl Strayed. So far, it is really good. Now I just need to take more time to read it.
Goal: Save money/budget reboot!
Status: This tied into the April edition of Something New. I will be giving a follow-up on that shortly.
Goal: Try something new once a month.
Status: For April, I tried to live like I did three years ago. This did not go as planned. It’s strange to think about how different things are in such a short period of time. May’s something new takes place on Thursday. You’ll have to check back for it. 🙂
Status: This is my new goal for May. I am going to post at least twice a week in some form (Twitter, Facebook, or on the blog) something that I am grateful for. I have been thinking about this a lot lately. Some days recently haven’t felt very inspiring (so to speak), so I think this will help put some things into perspective.
