Rebel Pilot Gar Posted April 5, 2022 Report Share Posted April 5, 2022 Hello late challenge start. Hope everyone is doing well. Work schedule has been really busy, lots of crazy hours. But in a good way (part of me enjoys the chaos). Unfortunately that means all the good things I was doing have started to fizzle out in the past week or two. The weather being alternatively warm or freezing and damp have not been helping either. The next month looks like work chaos will continue. So I am going to focus on basic habits and building up a running routine for a Half-Marathon I signed up for in November. 1) No alcohol Monday-Thursday Dry January went really well, February continued well then I started to slip up as March progressed This is more for accountability to continue to do good things. 2) Running Routine Training plan selected: Hal Higdon Novice 1 (12 week program) The race is ~30 weeks away so I have time to build a baseline habit & fitness. Step 1 - build the habit by working up to the below weekly run schedule over next two months: Mon Tue Wed Thu Fri Sat Sun Rest 1.5 mi run 3 mi run 1.5 mi run Rest 30 min walk 3 mi run 3) Basic Self Care Things I am already doing, but find that they start to slip as I get stressed. Mostly monitoring as a gage to stress levels Shower & wash face daily Brush teeth 2x daily Floss teeth 1x daily Officially going to start tracking this on 10 April. 4 1 Quote Dry January | 2022 Reading Challenge "Always remember, your focus determines your reality." - Qui-Gon Jinn, The Phantom Menace "I Find That Answer Vague And Unconvincing." - K-2SO, Rogue One ”Persistence without insight will lead to the same outcome.” [spoilers], The Book of Boba Fett Link to comment
