I loooooove you.
March 1 is always a big deal to me because not only does it mark the end of my least favorite month, it also means it’s time to celebrate the birth of the best thing that ever happened to music, EVER. I know there are two “ever”s in there, it’s intentional. For emphasis. I wanted to see if I could find a montage of clips of Roger swinging his microphone during performances because man, that’s sexy, but I couldn’t. So instead, here’s a little video of him explaining how the whole thing got started.
I would someday like to meet Roger Daltrey. When I was a senior in high school, I wrote him a letter inviting him to my senior prom. It was a great letter! Unfortunately, he never got it because it was sent back. Apparently I had the wrong address. Anyway, Roger, if you’re reading this, please have your people call my people. Or just email me.
Anyway, enough of that. On to weekly goals. After a crummy weekend, I’ve been determined to stay upbeat today. So far, so good. After all, it’s hard to get down on Roger Daltrey’s birthday. Since I missed yesterday’s race, I decided to sign up for a bunch more, including the Brooklyn Half-Marathon on May 22. Looking at the calendar this morning, I realized that gives me a solid twelve weeks of training time. And then I found a twelve-week training plan! How better, I thought, to revive my flagging running than to start a training plan? I’ve set up my training page with this week’s workouts, which will bring me to a total of 21 miles for the week, which is pretty much exactly where I want to be. So my primary goal this week will be sticking to that plan.
- Spend some time each day practicing positive self-talk and, related to that, try harder to catch and correct the negative self-talk.
- 2-3 days of weights or yoga.
- Balance again! I still need to work on getting to the gym, drinking more water, and developing a better sleep schedule.
What will you be working on this week?
