I know. It's been awhile...school and other unexpected responsibilities took over my life so I've been super busy, with very little time to blog (or engage in other forms of social media). Anyhoo, how did everyone get on with their September goals? Here's how I got on with mine.
(Haven't a clue what I'm talking about? Check out this post!)
#1 Train for a 5K race
Surprisingly, I kept up with this. I got into into a routine of running 3 mornings a week before class. Unfortunately I won't be able to compete in the race as I had hoped :( but I am going to continue with the training and try run the 5K distance by myself. I quite enjoy running in the morning. I have so much energy and better concentration during class, it's incredible!
#2 Read two books this month
I only read one this month - The Thing Around Your Neck - a collection of short stories by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. I really liked this book, it's so simply written with enjoyable story lines.
#3 Two blog posts and comment on 5+ blogs a week
This was such a FAIL. Ha. (I need to sort out a posting schedule...and my life!) I did actually interact very well on a few blogs in the first couple of weeks, so that was good. :D
I did very well on this on the aspect of running and fitness, so I'm glad about that. I still need to keep at it though!
Overall, it's not so bad. There are areas I definitely need to work on. My plans for October are to:
- Continue with the 5K training
- Try out a new exercise activity
- Blog more often - once a week seems more reasonable
With all that said....October come at me brah!
