We went on a run today. YAAAAAYYYYY!!
This year we thought it would be fun to put some videos together and share them. I am hoping these will become a little more exciting as the year progresses, but for now I thought these gave a good idea of how the first 7 days of the year have been.
I just finished my first week of work at my new job. It was a tough and laborious week, but it was really fun as well. So essentially you are seeing a bit of traffic this week, followed by a delivery we received from a new service and a new game we played last night.
Last year I purchased the ilovetorun.org calendar. I wanted a visual way to show all of my hardwork. In addition to logging workouts in Garmin and Training Peaks, having something to physically mark off was surprisingly satisfying. On days where I didn’t feel like working out, I would see the chain of Xs and (most of the time) it would motivate me to not break the sequence.
Up until September, when my life took a dramatic turn to the west, the calendar was quite impressive, especially compared to my lack to commitment in the years past. The last quarter of the year, with the calendar packed away in a box, my progress was dismal. A new house, a new job, and a new part of the country really took a toll on my exercising. If you look close enough, there are a couple of lonely Xs in there.
This year, I’m taking the same approach. A new calendar is hung, and on Jan 2 I have a chain of two Xs. Whoohoo! Here’s to a new year and a getting better every day.
