Shocker. I’ve already fallen behind. Send help.
I’m getting my ass into gear this week – the holidays set me back in every aspect of life, but I won’t beat myself up TOO much. I have so many goals for this year that I haven’t achieved (mostly due to poor planning). I really need to get my ass in gear.
For one, my longest run so far has been six miles…on the treadmill. Oops. I mean, at least I’m caught up on ‘This is Us’ and ‘Grey’s’. I LOVE a good long treadmill run – I prefer this so much more over a chilly outdoor jog, but I understand nothing is going to prepare you for a road race quite like…well…the road. I always tell people though, if you’re going into a marathon or half, train on your own terms. When you don’t that’s when it will stop being fun. While I want to get faster, I’m also not trying to make it torture.
In an effort not to sound too redundant, I like posting about these instances the most because it really admits to you guys I’m not perfect and definitely not a professional runner. As much as I love marathoning, winters are my busiest time and my schedule is never going to be perfect. Ever. Bear with me, but know I’m only human. Ok, thanks.
I’ve really refocused on making sure I’m slotting in my cardio time now like an appointment (even more so than EVER before). I’m so much more likely to stick to my plan when it’s a ‘scheduled’ part of my day.
Also – fundraising is REALLY going to need to take the passenger seat starting…like, yesterday. I have a huge event planned, which I’ll be sure to cover in full on Instagram! Any other race fundraisers out there I can use some tips and tricks, or if you’re looking for ideas check out this post I wrote a few months back.
Not only will I be 110% in towards Boston stuff starting now, but I’m compiling a killer line-up of content – including my January reading list, diving deeper into my DryBar obsession and prepping for Create & Cultivate LA (where I will single handedly be focused on becoming best friends with Kim Kardashian). Also, do you guys remember the 100 classes project I started? That will definitely be revived!
Basically, I have so many goals for 2018 starting here. Leave me your goals for 2018 on my latest Instagram post!
