It seems just like that we’re headed into fall. Or something that appears to be fall. Our leaves don’t change colors or anything like that. We don’t have to put on cute sweaters, nor do we get to wear scarves. (Oh how I envy people that get to wear scarves!) I don’t care about football and I hate eating pumpkin. (I’m making a face right now.)
How do I even know that it’s fall?
All of a sudden I’m super busy. Work is busy, school has started, the latter part of this month and half of the next month are “monster training” months. I’ve also taken on a side project that is keeping me super busy and of course, I’m working hard on my other blog.
Fall means it’s time to get back to the grind. So, grind I shall.
Here’s whats going on the next few weeks:
Running: We’re 9 weeks out from New York and for the first time, I feel like I *might* be able to run my super secret goal time. As the time gets nearer we’ll discuss that. Or not. Either way, I’ve got some big weeks of running coming up. This week is a rest week, but next week should take me well over 40 miles per week.
My biggest goal is to make it to the starting line healthy. This means I need to ice, foam roll, stretch, and strength train to stay healthy. I’m doing my hip strengthening workouts every day and hopefully that will keep the issues at bay.
Along the same lines, my nutrition needs to get in line and I need to slow my roll on the drinking. Hopefully, these 2 changes are exactly what I need to take off the last 5 lbs that I want to get rid of. (I fully understand that this weight might be in my head.)
Freelancing: I’m working on a project and need to stick to all of my (self-imposed) deadlines. I’m excited to be working on this project and hope it will open other doors for me. Yay for trying new stuff.
Finances: I’ve been spending way too much on food, so I’m working on paying a bit more attention to this. (Hmm…maybe not drinking so much wine will effect my food budget?) I paid off my last hospital from the pulmonary embolism. Now I just owe another $800 from when I fell down last year. (I did not know there was going to be a charge for it. My insurance sucks ass.) Otherwise, I’m stashing money for my next move. I think my next move is to buy a home, but I’m still sorting that out.
School: I’m in my last 2 semesters! I’ve got 2 pretty easy classes and am starting to research going to grad school. I need to start looking at the GRE. Scary…
Home / Declutter: I’ve been working on decluttering my house. I’m so sick of looking at stuff. I don’t really own that much, but when one lives in one place for a while they accumulate stuff. That’s what I’ve done and it needs to go.
New Blog: I just want to build my readership and actually write a serious/decent article periodically. (Maybe I need to give myself some parameters on this. We’ll see.)
So, that’s going to be my fall. Busy, busy busy.
What’s your fall look like so far?
Today’s Run: So boring I don’t even remember. Yes!
