Its March first and its time to restart on my new year’s resolutions. To be fair, it’s not like I’ve abandoned them completely. I just haven’t been focused, healthy or well-rested. Life, you may say, has got in the way. Nonetheless, there’s no time like the present to get refocus on achieving the goals I’ve set for myself in 2018.
I set very specific running goals for myself for 2018. My posterior tibial tendinitis somewhat derailed my running when they decided to rebel. I haven’t been able to run really at all this year. My ankles/feet are feeling better and the orthotics definitely help out. Moreover, my doctor has cleared me to return to running. To celebrate this monumental day, I signed up for my first (of 8) 5K of the year. The Mercedes Benz Corporate Run is a blast. Thankfully, it’s a night run, which for me is a much better proposition.
I set a resolution to attend 5:30 am classes, but that resolution fell by the wayside come February. We had multiple viruses and a concussion in the house, so my priorities were elsewhere. Plus, who wants to be that gal that bring the flu to the gym – not me! This coming week, I’ll be back at with a M-W-F morning class rotation. I miss the circuit classes and the weights.
All of these things will become much easier next week as the hockey season comes to an end. Its a bittersweet time of year. Bitter because the season is over, but sweet because we get our lives back. Tomorrow Goalielocks and I are driving to the West Coast for his state tournament. I wish the scheduling Gods would have scheduled both tournaments on the same coast, but, beggars can’t be choosers. Wish us luck as close out our hockey season, hopefully in a grand fashion, this weekend here in Florida!
P.S. Goalielocks has been headaches free for almost 3 days now! He has returned to school and skated last night. He was happy to have skated, but it was a tough practice for him.
