This week might look a little thin, and it should because I skipped not just one but two workouts and ended my second attempt at a running streak. And I’m actually okay with it.
I had some unexpected stressors this week with dealing with trying to stay stationed with my husband and as a result, I was so in the dumps not even a run could pull me out. I didn’t even want the wings at the DFAC and I love wing night.
I did get some good lifting in, and I ran a really fast, short run in on Wednesday after my lift.
There were some things I was hoping to do while at Bagram, like take a yoga or a spin class and ended up doing neither. Instead, I watched three new movies, I visited all the bazaars I could and bought and sent things to my family and friends, I tried to take pictures of all the different birds I saw, and I thoroughly enjoyed my cottage cheese and fresh pineapple for breakfast every morning.
Tomorrow is a brand new day and I have some brand new goals I’m going to work on as well. I’m not sure I’m going to try a running streak again. To be honest, I didn’t enjoy it and it made running feel like a chore instead of something I love to do.
The first thing I’m going to try to complete is the “Tour Afghanistan Challenge.”
It’s 1,775 “miles” and there’s a free t-shirt involved. I love free t-shirts. Every minute in physical activity equals a mile. I’m looking forward to picking up the t-shirt the next time I head back there and in the meantime, I’m going to be tracking my minutes towards it.
The other one is 200 miles, 5,000 push-ups, and 10,000 sit-ups. I think that will take me a little longer.
