Every week, every day, even, there are different challenges. Some days I’m able to overcome obstacles, big and small. Other days, I just can’t. But the important thing is I keep getting up every day and trying again.
Every year I say I’m going to be more consistent. To show up every day. I’ve been working on this for the last year or two, and I feel I’m getting better, but there’s always room for improvement.
These past few weeks have been difficult for me for various reasons. I had my period, which makes me incredibly emotional and fatigued. Then I had the first anniversary of my dad’s death. This week I feel incredibly run down as if I was on the verge of getting sick (half my co-workers seem to be), but my body is fighting it off. I’m going to bed before 9 pm, which is a little odd for me.
I may have taken more rest days these past few weeks, but I keep getting back at my workouts. My weight has been steady, and my mileage decent. I was even faster on my 5k trail race than I expected. My dog also got a distance PR. She did 3.5 miles with me! My goal is to work her up to 5 miles. She’s done over 4 miles hiking, so I’m pretty sure she can do it. (I won’t ever push her. I make sure to take her back home if she’s not interested).
I also finished strong in my weight lifting challenge. I can see lots of little changes, and I’m excited to keep moving forward with the new JG40 program! It’s 12 weeks of 3 full-body workouts. And they are KILLER. I cannot recommend it enough.
