Let’s not beat around the bush here-January was not a highlightabale month for me. It’s easy for me to pick out the best day which was January 7th when I ran the 20k.
Then when I went down to Atlanta I had such an awesome time with Laura!
But besides those five days or so-the entire month has been rather rough. (The five days though made it go up from a rating of 1 out of 10 to 4 or 5.
I had some serious knee problems that made me cut miles. Really-I haven’t been running too much since the beginning of the year. (which=sad Hollie oh wahh)
I broke my arm.
I went back to Upstate from the lovely VA-hard but not the end of the world. I’m close with my parents, it’s cold up here, the idea of run is staying inside and laying around…you know basic things I don’t like to do. (and there are no close malls gah!)
Honestly-lots of little things just kinda piled right on up to make my start of 2012 to be not well…not the greatest.
But that’s okay-because I’m *so* determined to make February my pivotal month.
Why and how?
I’m in Upstate now-that much isn’t going to change. It’s not bad and I’m having lots of fun, yes the cold sucks, but weather is weather. I’m staying busy (even with the arm) and I’m hanging out with all my friends of course to keep my mind off things. I really think having a good attitude is what keeps you sane. If I was all woah is me, my life sucks…then it would. But my life never sucks because incase you wondered-I’m always living the dream.
I broke my arm?
It will heal duh. It will heal in February and then I will run again.
Out of running shape? I’ll get there eventually-as my coach always says…I’ll have the longest running career because I’m always injured due to random things. All good in my hood.
So there you have it-February will be my month. How are you making it yours?
