I can’t believe that it is already the end of February! It has been a month of quite a few ups and downs but I made it through all of them.
On the good news I will be getting a job in about 2 months (YAY). It will be in the medical field and the building (which is currently under construction, which is why it will be 2 months) is in the city where I live! So, I can walk to work ^_^. This is a HUGE weight off my mind, I know the light is at the end of the tunnel and that is making everything better!
Other good news, which I can’t really believe I did it, I did 3 5k’s this month! Last year I didn’t think I could do even 1.
I have a total of 4 5k’s done for this year and still have another 9 more to go to complete the #13in2013 challenge. I will tell you guys all the truth. I never thought, when I first signed up for the challenge, that I would really go past my first 5k. But, I am proved to myself that I CAN do it and HAVE done it. I just needed to take that first step!
So, I really wanted to see what I was doing with my running. I mean I know that I can now go 3.1 miles (YAY) but there is room for improvement, as always, so I went do to Nike+ and got a 30 day review.
But, this review shows me that I did more then I thought I did. Which is exactly what I needed to start March strong. I want to beat 28.05 miles next month, I am thinking 35 miles? Or maybe I should do more? Not sure yet.
So, I feel that I have been a little lazy this month, okay at times a LOT lazy, but it is something that I am working on. The fact that I know I have a job means so much to me. I have a purpose and a deadline to having to stay at home all the time. I have a deadline to when I can stop trying to figure out my bills and just live again. It isn’t here yet but it is closer then ever.
Well, now that I am motivated by my running goals, how about we start the Motivational Thursday!
