do the Resolution Run (read all 11 entries…)
first two

The first two fun runs are already completed for the season. I’m not sure they were really runs though – the Santa run (which in the heat is a test of endurance more than anything) and the Colour Run (more of a shuffle than a run).

The first serious actual run of the season is coming up in 3 WEEKS! I can’t believe it’s so soon. I’ve been hitting the gym a fair bit to try to build fitness for it. I still think I’m in the “shuffle/walk” category but if I can shuffle a little longer than walk, I’ll be happy. :-)

Mothers day classic

Another 5km tomorrow. I haven’t done too much training for this one but it should be a nice day out :-) and a good way to keep motivated for the city2surf in August.

Running festival 2013

Yesterday I attempted to run 5km. I am so very, very sore today! Om the up side it’s all good pain (my knees seem to have held up which is great news!)

I didn’t manage to run the entire way but I’m running further than I have before. I also have a 5km time to beat next time. Next time is incidentally in one month. To train!

closing time

I’ve really enjoyed doing this goal but I need to start thinking about defining an end point.

Here are a few more:
- cook for friends
- bake
- learn something new
- spend time buying good quality, local produce with friends
- go for a long walk
- participate in community events
- tuck myself up with my laptop and research my dreams
- iron
- catch up on my current affair shows on the internet
- chat with my bf
- call mum

So when am I done with this as a goal (eg it just becomes a way of life rather than something I have to work on)? Ok here goes: this one will be done when I think I have done this for the next month :-)

This weekend is a check!

A new direction

So after around six months of going round in circles on this, I’ve decided to take a different direction.

I’ve found a course on iTunesU aimed at middle school students…it could be a good start. I’ve also found a good local class but may hold off on doing this until my weekends get a bit more free :-)

New runs on the list

Ok so I’ve signed up for the 5km event at the running festival and the 5km run at the Mothers’ day classic. Hopefully I’ll be able to do a little better each time :-)

I’m doing another month of dance so my fitness is improving all the time. my orthotics don’t seem to be hurting as much and my hip stability is improving too! Hurrah!

for the love of all things green and good: STOP GETTING SO BLOODY ANGRY! (read all 4 entries…)
lost it a little yesterday

...because the office door was left open repeatedly. It’s annoying becuase all the mozzies fly in. I hate working in a swarm of the things. It’s a bit distracting cnsidering that mozzies here can give you malaria and dengue…

People smoke outside my office. Smoke gives me a headache…and its a disgustin smell generally.

It was “my ring tone is better than your ring tone” and “I’m going to select a new ring tone on the highest volume for the next two hours” day in the office.

And I got two really hard emails to deal with – one managing the corruption in the office which isn’t my job but everyone looks to me to fix and the second from a colleague on a project that somehow has become my responsibility…even though its not my job and I’m not getting paid for it…

Ended up leaving the office after a few hours. I did manage to tone down the anger a lot but I really did just need a break after a while. Today I’m find ant I’ll be back at it in half an hour :-)
