My weekend has started. Tomorrow it’s Ascension day which is a Christian holiday. Most of the Christian holidays are public holidays here. Because Ascension day is always on Thursday a lot of companies are closed the following Friday, so is my and R.’s company. That means a 4 day weekend. And after that I have 4 more days of work left and my vacation starts.
I received a blogger award from Helen: The adorable blog award. Thank you Helen.
I usually don’t do much with awards but for Helen I will with this one. I have to write 10 things about me that you don’t know and I know what they are going to be too. I just need time to write them so I will be picking up the award officially on Saturday.
And now especially for my friend Shelley: numbers! 🙂
Workout goals May 2011
Quote of the month:
“We run, not because we think it is doing us good, but because we enjoy it and cannot help ourselves … The more restricted our society and work become, the more necessary it will be to find some outlet for this graving of freedom. No one can say, “You must not run faster than this, or jump higher than that”. The hum spirit is indomitable”. Sir Roger Bannister
May has been a month to forget soon:
- Apparently not finishing that half marathon in April has done more to me mentally than I first thought.
- I didn’t run as much as I had set as a goal for May.
- I didn’t do 1 yoga or strength session.
But what’s done is done. Looking back doesn’t help, looking forward does. I’m closing the book of May and start on a new page named June. Next week my training plan for my second attempt to finish a half marathon starts. In week 25 we are on vacation, I won’t following to the plan that week but will definitely bring my running shoes and just run for fun that week.
And I will be joining Heidi in her June challenge: 30 days of activity of at least 30 minutes a day. This can be running, walking or other exercises. I’ve added a table for this on the left side of my blog and will update this daily with how many minutes I did that day.
If anyone wants to join us in this challenge, feel free to do so.
Number and time of workouts in April: 12 workouts, total time 10 hours and 32 minutes.
