Today's the 5K. I got a good night's sleep, woke up early, and am having a small, healthy breakfast. When we were handing out race packets yesterday, one volunteer said to a participant, "Have a good run tomorrow." The participant replied, "Is there any other kind?" What a great attitude! That's my new attitude. Whether it's my strongest or fastest day ever doesn't matter... it's just good to walk! WooHoo! Here we go... it's going to be a good one!
Tomorrow's the Women's Half Marathon, where I will be participating in the 5K. Today, I am volunteering at the Expo. It will be a long day, but it should be fun. It will definitely be inspiring to be around all those healthy, active women!!
I didn't meet my 1000 minutes goal for August. Also, I am so far behind on my marathon-in-10-days goal, there's no chance that's happening. I had a candy bar today and a cookie. I didn't exercise at all.
I cleaned though. I didn't help myself to a donut I found at the office. I ate lots of fruit. Was physically more active on the job than usual. I got a good night's sleep. I even brushed my teeth before going to bed, even though I was so exhausted I could hardly keep my eyes open.
Each day is a new day. Some days I do well at some things and not so well at others. As long as I keep at it, keep my goals in mind, and keep getting up when I fall, I will get there. Starting with going to bed at a reasonable hour tonight. Good night!
I *know* this, but I still need to *learn* it. I was up very late this morning downloading music, so I didn't get much sleep. I am so stinking tired! I am sure the way I have been eating hasn't helped at all, but having a more consistent bedtime is probably a better place to start. I'm headed there in a couple minutes. Not yet 9:00 p.m. and I can barely keep my eyes open.
I signed up for the 10-day marathon challenge. I'm not sure I'm going to make it. I've taken the first two days off to rest. Of all my goals, this one is the lowest priority. I'm glad I've learned from SparkPeople to listen to my body and keep going rather than charging full steam ahead until I wear myself out and give up entirely. Slow and steady!
