Well it’s that time again; Another day, another year older.
Initially, I was bothered by turning 29 but then I thought about it and realized that I wouldn’t want to be 19 again. 25 was a good age, you’re not 20 anymore but not quite 30 yet. But I think 29 is going to be a good year, so I’m not worried about it! I’m actually looking forward to things down the road as I get older with some of the new goals I’ve set for myself recently.
The main thing that scares me is that I’ve heard a few of my buddies who are pretty active say “Once I turned 29, I didn’t heal as well” but I’m not sure if they’re just saying that to bug me or if it’s true, ha ha.
I have no big plans for today; test driving a motorcycle (very excited) and hitting the gym, that’s about it… maybe a short run with Coco. I don’t even want to go for a beer! I think I’ll get my fill this weekend, plus I’ve been doing really well with my goals this week and I want to keep at it. I’m down 1.5 lbs and I’ve run twice this week already and I’m enjoying it. They haven’t been far runs, about 3km each, but that’s a great start for me as I haven’t run in 6+ months and my body is in a lot of pain and hating me right now. I’m not sure I’m going to be able to do the Bluenose Half Marathon as I can’t go 1km without my hips acting up, but I’m going to try for at least the 10km. We’ll see how the training goes. I may be too stupid or stubborn to give up.
