I hope you all are spending some wonderful days with your families. I certainly did. We had so much fun and a holy lot of gifts were exchanged. My mom gave me a pair of running compression pants and my husband gave me a wonderful purple water and wind proof running jacket. Great presents! That leads me to another topic. But step by step….
Do you know this feeling? It hits me every year right after Christmas. I call it the “to-much-feeling” It means I feel like I had too much of everything. Too much sweets, too much sugar in general, too much alcohol, too much sleep deprivation too much to do. I am fed up with food and going out. I just want to never eat again and run all the crab out of my system. I’m already t that point this morning.
I was thinking about running a half marathon for a while and yesterday I finally made the move and signed in for my first half on April the 13th in Vienna. Okay I did it. I not only signed in I now told everyone that I will run. My husband also singed in and one of m dear co-workers is also game. Well basically she was the first to enrol and gave me the idea of choosing the Vienna Halfmarathon to be my fist one.
For me making myself accountable always was a huge motivation. So I decided to tell all of you that this is one of my goals for 2014. So let’s get down to business. After a energizing breakfast we will go for a 15k morning run. We want to check how long me need for this distance. We’re both confident to make the distance but it’s of course also a question of time.
I have a longer New Year’s resolution list forming in my head at the moment. I will have to cut down a little though. You cannot have everything at once. I sometimes try but I have to be honest to myself. It’s not possible. So I will make one step at a time. I will try to make a challenging but realistic list and try to make my way through it.
I’ll give you a short update later 😉
