I have decided that I need a goal. A workout goal, that is. Recently, my time has been limited, and because of the lack of sleep that is a result of limited time, I find myself hitting the snooze button more often than I jump out of bed and throw on my workout clothes. Although I believe that sleep is crucial for my overall well-being, my workouts are just as important to me. I get pretty grumpy and feel extra sluggish without them.
While I don’t see any marathons in my future, I am thinking a 5K might be a good goal for me. I have ran a few 5Ks in my lifetime, as well as one 10K…but I did all of them without training. In my case, it truly was mind over matter and finished I all of the races in a decent amount of time, but I know the “not training” method was not the best for my body. As I’m sure every runner would tell me the same. As the weather warms up, I am going to begin searching races in my area. I am doing a couple of races for charity in March and April, but I planned on walking those. I’m thinking May or June might be a good goal for me? I’m not a runner, so getting through a 5K (this time, without cramps or shin splints) will be an accomplishment. Any other non-runners (or runners) want to join me in reaching this goal ;)?
On another note, I am behind (yet again) on the 30 Day Challenge. Today is Day 22, how I’ve changed in the past two years.
As a college student, in this “in-between” part of life, I feel that I’ve changed a lot in the past two years.
I’ve grown stronger in my relationship with my wonderful boyfriend.
With that, I have learned that I cannot always get my way (despite my stubborn ways, he is right sometimes :)), and I have learned to communicate more effectively.
I have changed my major from Elementary Education to Communication Studies. This has allowed me to follow my passion- exploring career options in writing, and landing an internship as an editorial intern.
I have come that much closer to graduating (only two months+a couple of weeks away!).
And I have tried my best to enjoy the journey of it all. I say “tried my best” because I do have perfectionist tendencies (obviously), and I do get upset when things don’t go as I would have hoped. I’m learning to embrace change and the experience of it all as I go along.
I can only hope that the next two years will bring just as much, if more, happiness :).
Do you have any workout goals?/How have you changed in the past two years?
