Today? Coffee waiting for me when I woke up. A less-stiff neck than yesterday. A late start at work, and an orchestra rehearsal on the docket - yay! Oh, and I get to wear jeans! BLISS.
So, since I signed up for this (please join me if you're in the area. I'll be going sloooowly...) I've started on a little training regimen. My favorite exercise site, Social Workout, has changed their layout, and there are a bunch of different challenges that you can sign up for, if you're the sort who needs a goal/regimen to get yourself going. (And I do.) This challenge is to do 60 minutes of cross training and 60 minutes of strength training weekly, and to complete a total of 60 miles over the course of 5 weeks. I ran for 4.3 miles on Monday. LONGEST. RUN. EVER. So today I'm thinking that a little bit of heavy lifting at the gym before I head into work might be the way to go. While I'm nervous about running this longer distance, having a plan and sticking to it always makes me feel good. For as much as I'd like to be able to complete things in one fell swoop, the practice of chipping away at a larger goal is, strangely, comforting and energizing. I'm starting to love the thought of incremental progress.
(Now if I could just make the chipping away connection in the other areas of my life...like the house-cleaning area. And the work area...I'll get it someday, I'm sure.)
