Greetings! I first want to extend a warm hello to any new readers who found me after my feature as Women’s Running magazine’s Blogger on the run. I took some time and read through every comment (all 750+ of them!) and some of you said some really sweet things about my blog, and I so appreciate you all!
Sassy and Bella say welcome to the blog!
Welcome to RWS, and be sure to check out some of the tabs above (some have drop down menus) and look around. Here are a few places you may want to start:
Ok, so today is the first day of June (wow!) and I decided it was high time I set some goals for myself. I am relatively goal oriented, (aren’t most runners?) and work well when I have something to…well…work towards. I did a little brainstorming, and this is what I came up with for June:
Drink more water: I live in coastal MS. It’s hot and humid. I know I need to start upping my water intake with this heat, and the fact that I am constantly sweating during workouts from the second I walk out the door. I mean, am I going outside or walking straight into a tank full of water? I despise humidity! We have a zero water filter that we love and use every day. I need to start keeping track with how many times I refill it a day to make sure I am getting enough liquid.
Keep up with my training plan: Two days ago, I shared with you all that I had just started a new half marathon training plan and I REALLY wanted to stick with it. Only time will tell, but this is a big goal for me! I have completed two days so far, but still have a long way to go.
Read my Bible every day: I am actually usually pretty good about this and get 5-6 days in a week, but I want to be more consistent every day of the week, not just most of the time.
Foam Roll: This needs to be a constant goal for me. With my very tight and angry IT bands and the prior issues I have had with them, I really need to remember to be proactive with this one and not wait until it starts to hurt me again to foam roll. This is just pure laziness on my part.
Take more pictures with my DSLR: Folks I have gotten lazy. With my new iPhone, I have hardly picked up my “good” camera, except for when I am on vacation or at a particular event. The result is sub-par photos on my blog. Yes, it’s easier for me, but I need to stop with the excuses and just do it!
QOTD: Do you have any goals for June? I would love to hear them!
