I'll just come out and say it: I was really bad this week. I ran every other day like I have intended, but on those other days, I definitely didn't walk.
I definitely didn't meet my goal of 12 miles this week. It was really like 4.8 miles this week.
But, I did restart Couch to 5K so I can get a better mile time.
Goal for Upcoming Week: Run 8 miles and walk at least 2 days.
Having friends is expensive.
I've been on a self-imposed exile from my friends and I recently ended it. So, catching up with everyone is putting a dent in my budget. And, I bought tickets for my brother and I to go to a Suns game.
Goal: Don't pull out that debt card again.
I'm feeling great. I'm super tired from going out and working, but I think that's a good price to pay. And, as a recent text to a friend said, "I think I'm people again." I had a really good week and I hope to keep it up.
Goal: Keep it up.
I know it's not possible to be happy all the time, but I just want to be happier than I have been. Struggling with depression sucks, but I do so much better when I have things to look forward to (Suns game with my brother, friend's birthday coming up, etc.) and when I'm keeping myself busy. Running has definitely helped with that. And, this blog has helped me too. It gives me a set schedule and helps me to recognize all the positives I have in my life. If someone asked me how last week was, I probably would have shrugged and said, "Eh. It was alright." But looking at my post from yesterday
, I see what an awesome week I had. It was full of friends and family. And I'm thankful for both for keeping me sane.
