This has been a very busy week full of lots of moves forward personally, professionally and fitfully ( is that word?)
I had my first session with my health coach, Robin. I was anxious, of course, stepping into the unknown always make me anxious, but it was great. We will be working together over the next 6 months working on the health goals that I have worked out with her. She helped me articulate goals that I didn’t even know I had and put some in perspective. So the cover of Fitness Magazine is off the list for now, just kidding.
I have kept up with my half marathon training plan and my workouts. I am adding chia seeds to my green Smoothies now to aid in muscle recovery, since I am running longer distances every week. I also really enjoy the long runs. It’s awesome to feel that stretch. I am so fortunate to have met so many awesome people at the Healthy Living Summit who helped me see that you can and should make time for yourself .
This blog won’t be a place for me to discuss my job, but I will say that I love my job and have the opportunity to learn something new everyday and work with amazing and forward thinking people. It was great this week to be recognized for my part in moving that along.
I was in a meeting today and someone discussed a 5k this Sunday and was looking for a running buddy . Well guess who is running ?
I am always challenged by running in Central Park, so I am going to do the 5k. I think it will give me the confidence I need as my half marathon gets closer.
Update- I ran the race and had a personal 5 K best 30:01. I was fueled by all the brave women running around me.
