This is the first Sunday in a while where I’ve had no obligations … yay! I think my husband and I are going to take in The Avengers and then I’ll try to hit the gym later this afternoon.
Yes, you read that right … I’m PLANNING to go to the gym! I signed up to run my first 5k at the end of August which I’m a bit excited about, except I’m not much of a runner. Yet. My sister-in-law just took up running two years ago (and has since run 5 half-marathons) and when I asked her for some advice she sent me all kinds of great information and one of them was a 3 week training plan to get to running a mile. I’ve finished day 12 and though it’s been a challenge I’m proud of myself for sticking with it. I’m not going fast but I’m getting more comfortable with running, and I might even try a 1-mile fun run next month that my gym is sponsoring.
I’m still reading of course, just not as much as I have in the past. I’m currently reading for review a really interesting book set in 1600s Iran called Equal of the Sun; and off of my to-read pile I’m reading Quiet, a book that makes me feel ok about my introverted nature.
What do you have going on today?
