I am going to keep this short: the entire month of March was a Total Fail
1.) Do something about the fact that I barely speak any Italian, despite having lived in Italy for over two years. Fail
2.) Finally do a pull-up. Uber-Fail
3.) Run continuously for longer than five miles. I ran once in March. One time in 31 days. Fail
I spent most of March on the road (business, not pleasure) and used that as an excuse for all sorts of ugliness. Instead of practicing Italian I watched TV and instead of exercising I got up close and personal with a whole community of marshmallow peeps.
There is nothing more soul crushing than waking up in a hotel room with a stomach ache covered in pink peep powder. It was a low point.
There is nowhere to go but up, and I have decided to concentrate on one of my resolutions for the month of April: my running. I registered for a 6k in May and my goal is to run the whole thing, which will surpass my previous goal of running a whole 5k.
I also joined the Up and Running 10k online course starting in June, which means I should be well on my way toward achieving Resolution Number 3 come fall.
Wish me luck!
Good luck! I’m running my first 5k of the year next weekend. I’m afraid…very afraid….
Good luck on your 5k!! Please post some pictures, I need some inspiration!!!
