i just went running for the first time since (i think) february! i’m so proud of myself 🙂 i didn’t run that much, just a mile, but considering that i rarely ran a nonstop mile even while i was in track… (hey, i fudged the warm-up runs, okay? 🙂 ) it’s pretty good for me!
i’m still going to try to keep up my yesterday’s plan of always being productive, even though it didn’t work out so well last night (i wound up going to building one to hang out with erik, who was there doing his problem set, and eating some brownie/cake bars they had there), but i also developed a new plan of action while i was running. every week i will set three goals for myself: one goal for how much i’m going to run that week, one goal to get myself to eat more healthily, and one more which can be academic or something else. i think they key is probably to set goals that are reachable for me; after all, the important thing is not that i keep up with the full-time athletes who are also on the track, but that i do something good for myself.
on another note, who’s out there reading this? i haven’t heard anything from anyone, so i don’t know if i really have an audience or if i’m just talking to myself. i don’t care if it’s just the latter, but i would like to know.
