It’s that time of the week again! It’s time for ……
My birthday: Next week, I turn the big 2-8. I know it’s not a big birthday by any means, but for the first time in my life, I’m kind of in denial. I think it’s the fact that I’m closing in on 30. And the fact that my 10-year High School Reunion is this year. I’m just suddenly starting to realize I’m in my late twenties now. Even though sometimes I still feel like I just turned 21! 😉
Spain: A month from today, we will be in sunny, hot southern Spain for 10 days. I can’t even believe that we are down to 30 days. It doesn’t seem real. I feel like we just booked it yesterday. But it’s been almost 5 months. I can’t wait to see my best friend and her husband. I can’t wait to explore a new country with my fiance. I can’t wait to travel internationally with my fiance. I just can’t wait to travel. I love traveling.
We’re definitely hitting Seville, Vejer de la Frontera, and some other local spots. But any fun little day trips that are worth checking out would be greatly appreciated!
Couch to 5K: I finished Week 4, Day 3 today. I made it through the three days of 3 minute and 5 minute runs. Next week starts 5 minute, 8 minute and one 20 MINUTE RUN! I’m seriously freaking out. I keep trying to tell myself that I can do it. But I’m scared. I told myself that if I can do that 20 minute run with no issues…. I’ll signing up for the first 5K. Because if I can run for 20 minutes, than I know I go further than that.
I keep reminding myself Duration – Not Distance. Even though I want to be running 10 minute miles already!
Which leads me too…..
Running Music: I need to have music blasting in order to have a successful run. I know most people do. It helps me to zone out. I don’t think of my aching legs and breathing nearly as much. However, I’m finding I’m in a total music rut. I’m bored with my playlist. I like the RockmyRun app, but it’s the same playlists over and over with no shuffle. Pandora is quirky when there isn’t a good internet connection, however, I do love it when I’m not running.
I even tried redoing my playlist. And it didn’t help. I just don’t know what to do…. I guess I should listen to Pandora’s Dancehall channel and see if I can come across anything that makes me dance at my desk. That is usually how I know it’s going to be a good running song!
100 Books in 2014: I have set this goal for myself in 2012 and 2013. I’ve been just shy each year. I promised myself I would make it this year. It works out to be like 8.5 books per month. Totally doable seeing how much I read. I realized on Monday night, that it’s almost the halfway point. At this point, I should have read just around 50 books. Guess how many I’ve actually read?
I’m 14 books shy of even being on track. So guess who is now reading like a banshee to catch up to said goal.
I WILL MAKE IT THIS YEAR.
Questions for you:
1. Have you ever been to the Rota/Cadiz area of Spain? What is a must-see?
2. What kind of music pumps you up for your workout?
3. Have you ever set a reading goal for yourself? How did you do?
Have a happy Wednesday!
