Yesterday I decided to sprint through the rest of the year. Not that I want the days to go any faster. If they did I don't think I could keep up, but I want to work really hard to push forward and be successful in every aspect of my life. I was never one to brag, but I have to admit that I am doing amazingly well lately. In the past six weeks I have lost 11 pounds and still have three weeks to make my goal of 15 pounds. Not too bad considering I had one week that I logged no change after being in Oklahoma for my sister's wedding that weekend. Now I am on day two of my sprint and I am feeling good.
Yesterday I took the day off. My body was so sore from the race and I was exhausted. I did want to start incorporating strength training on my non-running days so I did 75 wall push-ups on my bathroom counter and 75 tricept dips with my bathroom counter. I can feel it a little today but not much. Tomorrow is an off day and I am going to concentrate more on my abs. Today I ran six laps at the park and walked one as a cool down. That was about 2 and a 1/4 miles in 43 minutes. I was sweaty and happy. I am still a little sore but feel so amazing. I don't know if it is hitting the 100's, fitting into my 16's really well, or just the fact that I am doing it that is making me feel so great. I am feeling pretty unstoppable in this area. My scale even read 197 this morning!
The rest of my life needs a little more work to get it to fall into place. You know how it is, you focus on one area and the other starts to slide. I have a bunch of homework and my grades are not as high as they should be. I have court reports to write at the office this week and last minute visits to make before the end of the month. So it is going to be a busy week for me. But I am sprinting along and will get it all done. Hopefully I won't drive everyone around me crazy while I do it.
How is your end of the year, challenge, month, goal, sprint, coming?
