Run/ Walk/ Bike/ Elliptical (Today: 1.77 miles; Running Total: 206.09 miles)
Day 248 of *Another* 100 Days of Good Karma.
Today was a practice in patience.
I started my second week of the C25K (Couch to 5K) app. This week I focus on running 90 seconds then walk for 2 minutes. When I finished I still felt like I could do more, that I could push harder, but I also know I’m prone to burning out early into a training plan. I had to remind myself to be patient and stick with the plan. If I do the work I’ll get where I want to be.
I went to radiation. Radiation has become old hat now. I lay back. I hold my breath a few times. I’m out of there in 25 minutes. I’m so ready for this to be over. And I still have 22 more treatments to go. If anyone has any tips for livening up radiation appointments I’m all ears.
With some help from my friend Veronica I finished cleaning up after the birthday party. At least in this I didn’t have to be patient. Cleaning went fast with her help. Laundry is caught up, the kitchen is clean, the floors are vacuumed. Thank God she came over. Without her I think I’d still be at it.
Today’s silver lining: Learning patience.
Even though I’m totally the second chicken.
What’s your silver lining today? I love comments!
