“Success is not final; failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”
Sorry I have been remiss in my posting. I have been in a funk for the last few weeks. Since my mom died the holidays have always been difficult for me, so it seems to be this way every year. I have still been running though. Not as much, but a day or two each week at least. I started a holiday running challenge to run every day from Thanksgiving to Christmas, but alas I broke my streak (of two days, lol) Saturday because I spent the night with a friend & didn’t come home until late that day. Then Sunday I pretty much spent all day in bed & yesterday… I pissed around until it was too late to go. Today would be my regular running day, so I am going to run today. I have had some good times lately though, so I am at least pleased with that. I’m getting closer to my 15:00 goal. Haven’t made any progress on my 10K program, mostly because I can’t get motivated for the cross training & strength training days. I have always had trouble adding anything other than running to my routine. Adding new things ends up with me quitting everything; I’m so weird.
I have just in general been so unmotivated about everything. I hardly want to get out of bed most days. However, today I am posting this & have already gotten started on some things around the house. Also I got started on a rather ambitious new crochet project. For my dad’s birthday (which was last week…) I am making a pillow for the University of Alabama. The front is going to be red with a white “A” in the middle done in graph crochet & the back is black & white houndstooth. I have already finished the back & the houndstooth stitch was a new one for me. This is also my first time doing graph crochet & since the design is really simple I think the only difficult part is going to be getting the graph right so the size works. I think I finally have it figured out, but we shall see when I start over on it today:~/
On the plus side, I have spent more time around friends lately & even met some new people. I dusted off an old dating profile & have been talking to a few guys online in hopes of getting some offline dates. Got to get back in the game so I’ll be ready for all the men when I get to Portland!
I have had some eating/weight issues lately, but I think I’ll save those for their own post because there are some things I’ve been meaning to write about.
