1- Can 100% see why my structured reading plan idea is completely unappealing to many. Really, I do! But for me it will be a fun experiment. ALSO, I am going to thoroughly mine the comments section for your ideas!
2- TAYLOR SWIFT‘s new album is coming out!!! My kids are super into her these days and I am HERE for it.
3- Yesterday I finished my Wellcoaches certification requirements! Well, I submitted everything, anyway. And passed my written test. I will find out in a week or two if I passed the practical exam, but I think it went okay! I am not planning on becoming a coach per se, but it’s nice to have the certification (and I do feel like I learned some useful things to apply in both the clinical + personal realms).
I started this during the pandemic at the suggestion of my work colleagues who went through it, and I definitely dragged it out. But I finished.
4- I have a tough run this morning on my training plan (2 mi warm up, 2 @ 8:50-9 pace, 4 min rest, 2 @ 8:50-9 pace, 2 mi cd = 8 total). Telling myself that the goal is simply to try my best and even if I can’t meet these (arbitrary!) benchmarks, it will be great training. On the plus side, it’s 65F as I type this, exciting!
At least I will have good music (see above).
5- Weekend planning: today looks like a fairly busy work day and I am sure my in box will have a lot in it since I’m still M / T / F. But if I have even 45 minutes during lunch I am going to try to order groceries and bang out a little weekend planning, since it worked so well last week.
