Happy Cinco De Mayo! Also, Happy National Day of Prayer! It’s another cool day today, I think I am about to go for a run before it warms up, then head to Target, where all of my money will magically disappear!
So yesterday I did a review of the results of my April mini goals, and told you I would come back today with May goals. (I am totally aware we are already 5 days into May, I am slacking a bit this month. Do as I say, not as I do, mkay?)
1.) Sell our dang house!!! As stated before, this REALLY needs to be done. We lowered the price again, and it has been on the market since September, and we really really would love to be free of this burden. Hopefully this is our month!
2.) PR in the 5k. As much as I hate May 5k’s because of the heat, this seems to be the official 5k month around here, so we are forced to race this month if we want to race at all. We will be running two 5k’s, one the 14th and one the 21st. I am excited about the one on the 21st because it starts and finishes at a waterpark and then after the race you get free admission to the park. FUN! To top it off, entry fee is only $13 including the race, t-shirt, and waterpark entry!
3.) Do more stretching. Right before the marathon, I was stretching a lot. I have been doing research and inflexible hips are apparently causing me a lot of problems. They lead to more injury (been there…) and because they are so tight my stride is SO SHORT. I have been trying to focus on stretching out my stride when I run and it makes me run faster and with less energy required, but I have to focus hard on every step in order to do this.
4.) Raise 1/3 of my TNT goal. I mentioned a couple weeks ago Bobby and I are running a fall race with Team in Training. I would love to get as much fundraising completed as quickly as possible so I can focus on training. You can donate HERE. I promise you EVERY LITTLE BIT helps and is SO appreciated! Please consider donating to the cause.
As I have stated in months past, I prefer to make small, very attainable goals as to not set myself up for failure and to boost my confidence in knowing I can “scratch something off my list.”
Just for fun….Here is Bobby hitting golf balls in the park in front of our house.
…and Bobby sitting on the fence in the backyard. It’s like having a 5 year old boy I tell you!
