Resolution 3/52

It's been a good week for my resolutions. I went to bed at a decent hour on every weeknight and wrote in my journal every single day {yay, me!} The goal I'd set myself this week was to catch up on my letter writing. It was so good to have told you all my goal. I wanted to be able to come back with a success to report to you, and I'm happy to say I sent out 9 letters and cards between Friday and today. I have a few more I'm working on. It's been so much fun going through all my stationery, and I can't help but hope I get a whole bunch of mail in return. Letters in my mailbox make me very happy!

Now, resolution #4. This week it's about exercise.

My 10K running clinic begins tomorrow evening, and I'm determined to make the most of my training time this year. The way the clinic works is that we meet once a week and run with our coach, gradually working our way up to longer runs {both distance and time} as the 14 weeks go by. Then we need to do two independent runs each week, following the run/walk plan. This week I am resolved to do both those indpendent runs, no matter how busy I might be with other things. I found it easy last year to get myself to the clinic each week, but not always as easy to commit to the other two runs. I want to start as I mean to go on. So, week 4 of 2011 will see me lacing up my running shoes at least 3 times as I slowly make my way to the starting line of that 10K run on May 1st! Wish me luck?

And now I'm off to bed. Sweet dreams!


  1. I think I need to adopt your resolution for this week! :)

  2. welll done on the letter writting, the recipients will be very pleased, there's nothing beats a nice letter :)

  3. I bet you'll be amazing at it! You can definitely do both of your independent runs. Hope you have a lot of fun!

  4. That sounds like a nice, gradual way to work up to a 10k! I give you a lot of credit for committing to something like that, lol! I reaaaaally need to start running... But instead I just ate a cupcake for breakfast.

  5. I SO need to get back to my regular exercise routine too. I've been overwhelmed and so far behind lately. I'm doing my best to catch up. I wasn't going to do another half marathon until June but I just found out there's going to be one through the Wild Animal Park in March -- wanna come down and run it with me?

  6. YAY YOU!!! :)

    man oh man, i'm getting back to my running days and it hasn't been easy. our neighborhood is FULL of hills and it's killer to get up them. I am also one of those that prefers to run on the treadmill so this has been a def. challenge but you've inspired me with your running clinics and marathons. let's keep each other at it, yes?

    and your comment about brownies after a run being the "usual" made me smile :)

    thank you!!!

    i'm really excited to get a letter from you in my new mailbox-- they're always my fave!


  7. AND you're in training for a race? my goodness, the more I read here, the more I feel like we're long lost kindred spirits :)

  8. Can't wait to see if one of those letters will make its way into my letterbox! I have a sneaky suspicion...

    I think the running clinic is a great idea, I really do and only wish I could take part with you. Of course it is a little too far to travel!

    Good luck and I bet you will smash your previous time in May.


Yay! I love comments.
