I decided to set myself some active living goals for the warmer months. I enjoy walking and running around town normally but I decided if I set some realistic goals for an active life, I’ll be more commited and consistent.
Beginning in April, I will run or walk every Monday, Wednesday and Friday morning. I have chosen three days rather than five because it seems so much more achievable. If I overcommit, I may just give up because I won’t be able to get it all done. Today was day one. I ran to the swimming pool and ran home, it ended up only taking me thirty minutes to get there and a little longer to get home as I stopped at the grocery store on my way. It feels good.
Because of our unpredictable weather, I have decided that I will run from April to October. I would like to be one of those year round runners but giving myself an “end date” will help me to keep my commitment. I’ll have to come up with a winter activity when the time comes.
Do you set any active living activities for the warmer months?
