Day 4 of 2022.
I really don’t know why I’m counting the days except for the fact that I’ll be pretty damn proud on day 78, or day 199, or day 364. 🤘
Another goal I have for this year is running a 10K.
This has been a goal of mine since 2020. I was training this past year but then I injured something. I say ‘something’ because I have no idea what happened. It felt like my ankle and my Achillies, then the pain was in my foot and would go up my calf then be in my hip and head back down my leg. So, yeah. I continued to run on this injury without seeing a doctor and now I can barely walk without being in pain. I finally have an appointment this month on the 13th.
I trained for my first 5K with the C25K app through Zen Labs Fitness. So simple and easy to follow especially for beginners. If you are at all interested in running, I highly recommend their app to start. I was running 5K’s at least once a week (or 3 miles however you want to say it) once I completed the training. I’m pretty slow, but I never stop. A faster mile is a personal goal I work on every time I run. This last go I was running an average of 12:3o per mile. When I first started, I was struggling at a 15-minute mile. Progress takes time. Consistency is key. Put in the work, you’ll see the results.
Training for a 10K I used the Nike Run App. I found a 10K Training Plan that helped me begin the training. I got my injury around September/October, so I haven’t been able to run for a few months. I walked a 5K the beginning of October and that was the last time I did any running or walking. The Nike Run App has distance runs and timed runs and runs to help clear your head, long runs, speed runs, short runs. Coach Bennet is so helpful and keeps your mind off the fact that you are running and enjoying it, and no one is chasing you. Follow him on Instagram at @coachbennett.
Check out my new kicks I bought for Christmas!
Oh, today is our first day of virtual Kindergarten! Yay. They announced this week will be virtual, so I guess we’ll hear more at the end of the week if this will continue or if they will go back into the classroom.
It’s actually not that bad. These teachers are something else doing virtual teaching. They all deserve raises.
