This week’s Friday Five is goals. Goals are good. I have goals. Therefore, I must be good. Logic. 😛
1) Continue strength training to help make me a stronger runner. I’d like to be able to lift heavier than I am now and give my arms a little more definition. Heck, I’d like abs too, but that may be reaching.
3) Write some fiction. This one has been very frustrating. I do have a loose idea for a new suspense novel, but have yet to start typing. It could be a lot of fun to write, but I’m having trouble getting the courage to start.
4) Um, not that I don’t have a lot of mini goals, but I’m struggling here for anything of interest. Weed the garden, clean my closet, mail the excess books to the women’s prison library. Stop negatively assessing my body. Read more books (my ability to concentrate on anything longer than a magazine article is small lately). Get my review of the MebGo Skechers shoes written (quick preview: love them)? Do you really want my boring To Do list? I’m just not all that interesting. Maybe I should add this goal: get a life!
5) Qualify for the Boston Marathon. Hopefully this will happen in October. At the moment it feels like a long shot 😦 I just feel awfully tired every time I have run this past week. The idea of 20 milers makes me want to hibernate.
Have a great weekend!
