All my complaining about the lack of sunshine must have done something, because while it’s been chillier in Calgary at least the sun and blue skies are starting to make an appearance again. I’ve even seen green grass! (In between the piles of snow, that is.)
Working out is also starting to have an effect on me and how I feel/look. Kaila and I have been at it for just over two weeks now and we’ve both noticed positive changes. It has been a long time since I was able to see improvement in such a short span of time! I’m crediting her for pushing me like crazy, especially when I didn’t want to go.
The 5K is at the end of June, and I feel confident that I’ll be able to complete it in under 40 minutes. I’m aiming for something around 30, but for my first race I don’t want to get too ahead of myself.
I’m getting close to running a 10-minute mile now, and if I complete three of those in a row then that’s essentially 5K. Yesterday I averaged 5.58 MPH and ran for close to 10 minutes. GUYS! I think I can actually do this!
Overall, my mood has been improving lately, which I’m very thankful for. I hate feeling that twisty, itchy feeling that sneaks up in the spring.
I wouldn’t go so far as to say that it’s spring here *quite* yet, but it looks like winter is starting to fade… though I believe we’re in for anther snowfall this weekend. For the record, it started snowing here in mid-October, and we’re now in mid-April and it’s STILL SNOWING. This is seven straight months of cold, frozen precipitation. That is more than any one person should have to bear.
And essentially, that’s why it’s all I talk about.
Aside from that, there’s not a lot going on in my life. Thomas’ is far more hectic right now, but it’s not my place to talk about his stuff on my site.
What is everyone up to this weekend?
