Hi everyone, it’s been awhile! I hope we can reconnect like old friends, where it seems like no time ever has passed when you reunite. 2018 has been a busy year so far and has taken us through several snow storms and balmy days (west coasters and southerners, 50 degrees is warm for Boston!), exciting and strange movies (calling out “Shape of Water” here), a soul-gripping Patriots football game (sorry Jaguars fans), and a quick Florida getaway to see my parents.
I have cut back on running for several reasons, which I’ll go into in another post! This includes a desire to change things up a bit, but I have kept up my fitness with lots of walking (treadmill and outside when it’s not snowing/arctic cold) here in Boston:
I’ve also gone to many spinning, barre, and yoga classes. Some thoughts on yoga: 2018 yoga has been different than other times I’ve practiced. This time around it’s more of a focus rather than a supplement to running. It’s been refreshing to switch the focus on this new hobby, for now at least! Yoga has continued to demonstrate my inflexibility, but I can tell my body feels stronger in other areas. I’m sure my flexibility will increase as I continue- and it’s just setting me up protection from future injury. Namaste to all that!
I am aiming to get back into my running routine this fall and have applied for the NYC marathon. Who knows, maybe I will be the 10% that gets into the race this way! If I don’t make it in to NYC, I will look for other fall races. Just thinking about the potential races gets me very excited!
So with that, here are some of my short/longer term goals for the upcoming year:
I know it’s 25 days into the goal-setting season, but as I’m always 5 minutes late to everything so this seems like a fitting delay for written goals.
One more from Florida:
What race(s) are you training for?
What’s your favorite fall race? Did you apply to NYC marathon lottery?
Have you seen any Oscar nominees? My favorite so far has been Ladybird!! <3
