I was thinking about all the times I have tried to get on a health and weight loss journey, I failed each time after about 3 months. I am on my 6th month with my journey and have not fallen once, I have had some ups and downs like anyone would, but I haven't fallen off and had to play "catch up". Usually if I have a down day, it turns into a down week, then month.... and so on. One big thing I have learned is that the next day is new and I can pick right back up with no problem. This is my new willpower that I have gained on this journey, along with the word "moderation". This was a new word to me and was shocked that I just can't eat everything at once, that is how I was how into my past situation!
This morning I planned on doing just a normal walk but since I was feeling really good, I decided to do the Eyeball Run 5k (virtual)! I had it in my planner to do it sometime this week but was waiting for the shipping notification for my medal before I planned on a day, but I decided to just do it early anyways! It wasn't my fastest but my only goal on this virtual race was to keep my splits under an 18:00 min/mile, since that is the only requirement for the 10k next month, and I did just that! I'm super happy I did! Can't wait for my medal to come!! Next virtual race is on Monday for the Runs for Cookies 4th Annual 5k! Hoping to get back to my 5k PR of 49:25, that is my only goal!
I'm still trying to break in my new shoes, they feel great on my short walks but once I hit that 2 mile this morning... I really felt it under my toes and the ball of my foot. I kept going though, I think I may look into getting some new sole inserts by the end of the month, that may help! My heels felt great though haha!
