Yesterday's post was the stupidest one I've ever done. I even thought about deleting it, but decided to keep it as a reminder to never do that again.
First of all, I do this blog mostly for myself. Typing out my thoughts helps me think. I used to write them out (I had kept a regular journal- not a diary, journal- since middle school) but now type them out on the computer. That's what this blog is about- to help me gather my thoughts about my running and about my diet.
Secondly, what that fuck am I doing with following along with what other blogger do? I hadn't had a post in a while, so I thought "Hey, why not do a Wordless Wednesday, the other bloggers do it". Since when have I ever done what other people do or thought I should do? It's not like I'm a black sheep type or anything; I do care a great deal about family, friends and other people. But, last night I thought for a few seconds- "Who wants to hear me talk about my plans for running?". Fuck that. You know, I really don't curse out loud- I've been teaching elementary school for a dozen years and before that I worked as a counselor with children and have my own as well, so I've really tempered myself (when anyone else is around any way). Who wants to hear about it? I DO!
So, tonight I'm going to do the heating pad on my groin to warm up the damaged/healing area and head out. My plan on the road? 1/4 mile walk, 1.25 mile run (.25 longer than the last two) and 1/4 mile cool down. Then it's on to 100 ups, both minor and major and then 2x1:00 minute planks. I'm hoping to get 45 seconds on each side as well after that, but we'll see.
I have been doing the 100ups and planks for 4 straight days. I'm hoping to get to 30 straight days. I joined up with #PlankADay on twitter and also #100up on twitter/ Facebook as well.
I also joined up with a 100 mile challenge on Daily Mile for the month of December. I know I'm injured and I won't make it, but I just wanted to. Why? Because...
That's what this blog is about.
