Each evening in February, I will make a note of three things which made me smile that day. These can be big events or exciting news; they can be silly little jokes or fleeting, seemingly insignificant moments; they can be pretty sights, nice smells, compliments, ideas, anything at all as long as they put a smile on my face.
All credit for this idea goes to Sarah Rooftops. She also designed the banner and a widget that I cannot get to show up on my blog for love nor money. I fail a bit. Anyway, I would love it if you guys got involved – even if you don’t want to blog, you could take a moment to tweet your 3 things. #3thingsfebruary is the hashtag to remember 🙂
Now, onto my dilemma. I’ve been running for about 6 months. Exclusively on the treadmill, I started following the Couch to 5k programme. Now I mostly go for 5k, which I can manage in about 40 mins or push it for a fast 3k in less than about 22mins. I want to get out onto the road soonish, as I know that will be different challenge altogether. My question is this. Do I put my name down for the Race for Life in July? Or go for broke and push myself for the Baker Hughes 10k in May? Will the 10k be too much and leave me disheartened? Or will taking the easier route of a 5k with more time to prepare make it too easy to slack off? I welcome all thoughts and suggestions 🙂
