As I read G’s update, “How Boundless and Awesome Am I?” I got really nervous. I knew I had committed to running a lot of miles with her, but what else? Maybe things weren’t going to turn out any different than 2014. That certainly wasn’t my intention.
These were the intentions I set out to accomplish for 2015:
Monthly Challenges (January -Planks) – So, I did begin January doing planks… I am pretty sure I forgot that this was one of my intentions.
Running 2,015 miles with G – I have only run 409 miles this year which means I still have 598 left! I better lace up my running shoes a little more often.
Outrun 2015 – Nope. I opted out of the Outrun this year due to lack of training and my middle daughter having a big concert the same day. While I did miss being with G this year I don’t regret the decision.
Slacker Half Marathon – I am registered and the Slacker is this Saturday!
Running 3-4 days week with my neighbor – I actually was running/walking with my neighbor until school let out for the summer. Now I am just going with my pup, Samson, most days.
Weight training – While I haven’t done this religiously I would say I have had a weight lifting routine for most of the year. I am definitely moving in the right direction.
Yoga- I have discovered the benefits of yoga as well as an awesome Yoga channel on Youtube, Yoga With Adrienne. Now I am not a yoga expert, but I do love doing these yoga videos. Check it out!
OK, so these are the nitty gritty intentions I made for 2015 and I need to step up my game, but my overall theme is Sacred. So, how am I doing? Actually, if I am honest, I am doing it exactly the way I intended when I set this goal in January. For me, Sacred was about a feeling, a deep sense of peace and contentment, being fully present and not disregarding MY needs. While I know I can definitely make some improvements, I believe my real intention was not to let 2015 pass me by because I am never going to get some of these moments back again.
So, I may have slacked off on my training runs and I may not have run all of the races I intended when I began this year, but I do know I am doing everything I can not to miss the important moments.
Don’t think I am letting myself off that easy though. That is what this check in is all about; getting things back on track. After all it’s not too late to reach most of my 2015 goals.
It’s not too late for you either.
