August goals in review

I royally cocked up August.  There’s no easy way to get around it.  I spent  the entire month wallowing in self-pity, depression, and pain.  My headache returned and I was injured (I did see a physio and apparently my calves are too tight, causing pain, so not REALLY injured, just need to stretch more).  I felt if I couldn’t run, I was a failure, and it was really hard for me to get off the couch/out of bed.  It also didn’t help that in tapering off the Amitriptaline, I’ve had awful insomnia.  Like I said, pity party.

My goals for August were:

  1. Go to run club every week.
  2. Run 2-3 times per week.
  3. Remember to stretch, ice, compress after every run.
  4. Strength train at least once per week- aim for twice.
  5. Continue to make progress on my research.

I didn’t achieve any of them at all.  Not even remotely.  Granted, with the injury, 1-3 were out.  I managed a few strength sessions, but I felt like they were such a waste since I didn’t really have a routine or plan for it.

I don’t want to talk about my research.

I haven’t even kept up with blogging, because to be honest, my posts would have been me whining and complaining about how I can’t get out of my own way.

So, for September, I decided that my goal is just to attempt to get my shit together.  I’m not even really sure what that is going to entail, but I know it shouldn’t involve me laying in bed reading 3 novels a day.

I could aim high right now and set a goal of fixing my sleep schedule, but I have 2 words that explain why that would just be a waste of time. Post-season baseball.

Wow, this post is all over the place (like my brain right now).

Here’s a Molly sleeping in my bed.
