just.keep.swimming's Journal, 18 February 2013

6 days left until my 29th birthday
76 days (10 weeks!) until my first half-marathon.

I can't chicken out of the marathon because my boss paid for it and a group of us from work are all participating. I signed up for it and thought, "I've got 5 months, that's plenty of time" but now I've got 10 weeks and haven't trained yet. :S

This week at work is my first fairly easy week. Last week was crazy. I love my new job and if I can handle last week, I can handle almost anything.

I'm not going to make my goal of being out of debt by the time I turn 30, but I'll still give it my best shot. I'm still working on buying a new bike. I need to get it paid off by summer, so I can take long trips with my boyfriend. I think it's going to be a blast.

All of those plans start with eating better and exercising every day. I can start each day and each portion of the day as a new opportunity. If I mess up, just do better the next meal.

Ok, time to head to work. Happy Monday!

they have lots of apps on your phone now to help you start training. I would google it because I haven't used one but lots of people on FS do. You might not be debt free yet but you are working on your health which is very important! Happy early birthday just in case!
