Last year, my husband and I ran a 5k and a 4.2 mile race. We were also very happy with our results. The hot summer months really slowed our progress, but we started running again this fall. I feel very comfortable running 2-3 miles at a time and I would like to increase my mileage and improve my pace.
Today was the first day of the year and we ran only about a mile, but hey…better than nothing!
With the exception of an eight month pull-free time in 2007, I have been pulling a significant amount for almost 10 years. That makes me so depressed. This is the reason that I have to stop this habit in 2013. I can’t be pulling for longer than a decade! One decade of this disgusting habit is enough. I will make this goal my number one priority this year…starting today! I plan to log my progress each day and hopefully can just count down the pull-free days. Looking forward to a time when I don’t have to worry about this anymore. I feel very positive and motivated!
So this past month and a half I haven’t been tracking my progress. It actually hasn’t been a bad time for me habit-wise, I just haven’t consistently done a good job and so have decided not to count the days. I would say I have had about 3 bad days where I have done a lot of damage to my hair. Other than that, a hair here or there. Not good, but not too bad either. I am ready now to set another goal and work towards it again. I would like to focus on 30 day increments leading up to a year pull-free. It will be extremely hard for me, but I think I can do it. I know that I can do these next 30 days and then we will see about the next and the next….
So…I haven’t pulled yet today and I am going to do everything possible to not pull the rest of the day or the evening. I will log in tomorrow and hopefully write an entry about Day 1 pull free!!
I will treat myself to something nice at each 30 day end…like a manicure or a new piece of clothing or an album on iTunes. I am totally ready to try this all again!!
