Running On Average

Working on My Follow Through

I’m a dreamer. I have these big ideas of things I want to do and projects I want to complete and I get all excited thinking about them, devising plans, creating lists, and envisioning the end results. But my problem is on the follow through. I’m terrible at it. And I’m beginning to get annoyed with myself for starting then stopping, beginning but not completing.

I want to run and lift more consistently.

I want to take my kids on more adventures.

I want to clean up my diet.

I want to write a novel.

I want to actually write in this blog regularly.

I want to stop starting over.

Change is hard. Especially the beginning stages where you have to work up the momentum and work your way into a groove. But maybe I can use my stubbornness to my advantage and finally follow through.

I ran my fourth marathon April 22, so after a few weeks of low key exercise and recovery I’m ready to start training for the Pottstown Half Marathon July 14. I started training this past week and beginning on Monday I will be doing 80-Day Obsession to add strength training to my routine. I’ll be modifying it, both in the exercise and diet aspects since I’m running and still nursing my baby boy.

For the family side of things, I’m creating a Summer Fun list for daytime adventures with my kids so we don’t spend too much time watching Paw Patrol.

As for the writing, I definitely want to dig into my novel writing, but instead of overwhelming myself right out the gate, I’m going to start with my family and my health/exercise.

So join me on my adventures! What are some goals you want to achieve? Let’s hold each other accountable!
