My computer flashed the blue screen of death a few days ago and refused to turn back on. Today, as I randomly tried to troubleshoot it, doing all the same things I've been doing all week, it suddenly decided to work! Who knows how long this will last, but for now, I'm glad to be back!
At the beginning of the year, I set some lofty goals for myself; I'm a little afraid to do a check-in. May leaves me feeling pretty beat up and washed out; I barely ran at all because my energy levels were naught. Still, I think facing those shortcomings will help me get back on track faster.
2. I actually kept up with this for awhile, but my real plan was to add cross training into my year slowly. Now that school's out, I plan to attend yoga on Thursdays (one of my colleagues teaches for free in the local park) and try some barre classes with my runner friends. I'm looking into joining a gym again, too...I want to cross train in a way that will actually help my running.
3. I'm really behind on this goal, as I haven't been doing any speed work. Once I'm back on track with being consistent, I'll add this back in. (My marathon plan this fall also incorporates very specific speed work, so I know that will help.) I usually save this goal for fall/winter races anyway!
4. Speedwork. See above!
Over all, if I'm being honest, I'd have to give myself a C on working toward meeting this year's goals. I was trucking along nicely until April; I know I'll get back to it. I plan to finish this year with a solid, hard-earned A!
How are your 2015 goals coming along?
How do you get back on track after life happens?
