bad blogger.

wow, i've been bad at blogging, for nearly 3 months.

guess what? being blad at blogging is highly correlated with being bad at running.

partly, this is because i've had a lot of annoying pain when running, so i have had trouble keeping up.  but also, i've been lazy and i've avoided exercise because of laziness, having a cold/allergies, and disliking cold weather running. (I LIVE IN THE SOUTH WHY ISN'T IT SPRINGTIME YET?).

i don't think i have it in me to write really interesting posts right now, but i do think that i need to hold myself accountable to exercising and eating healthy (yeah, i've been bad at that too).

so, i think this might be a good platform for me to publically shame myself into exercising  share how i am doing in hopes of increasing accountability.

my sports massage therapist told me i need to do at least 10 squats every single day to strengthen muscles that are currently weak and causing at least some of my running problems.  i also think i should do at least 25 crunches and 10 push ups every day, and have a few other goals, so here goals:

Goal #1: Every day, do 10 squats, 10 push ups, and 25 crunches.
Goal #2: Foam roll and stretch 3 times per week
Goal #3: Go to spin class once per week
Goal #4: Run or run/walk at least 3 times per week (but hopefully 4)

at some point, perhaps i'll write up race recaps: since i last blogged i've completed two half marathons.  spoiler alert: no PRs.  i have 4.5 weeks until my next half marathon, so i'm hoping i can make another attempt at PRing then.

that's all for now!
