TWIRL: The Week in Review for Lisa

Happy Sunday folks!

Hope you are well.  I got to sleep in today so I am clearly feeling pretty awesome. 🙂

Btw–did you get it?  My “TWIRL” post–This Week In Review for Lisa?

It’s been a whoooole lotta time since I last did weekly workout reports…and I sorta miss them.  I loved tracking my mileage and seeing that number grow over the weeks and months.

So I’m getting back into it.  I figure it’s the perfect time.  I’m on the comeback wagon.  Hoping to run a spring half, possibly a fall full (yes…I said full…gulp!) and all of it ending with an awesome weekend in Disney with Team Can-Am.  It also just happens to be perfect because it is a new month….and a new month with a Sunday starter….so really…it works perfectly.

I’m even attaching a few extras to this week in review thing.  I want to try and hit a minimum 10-15 miles a week over the next few months, until 2016 hits (so hitting about 90 miles at minimum).  I think it is achievable and still allows me to take my time on the comeback wagon.  The other extra to the challenge is a hint of gratitude.  Lately I’ve been a whole lotta sour skittle and despite things annoying me, I have a great life and I’m hoping that re-engaging a daily gratitude practice will help me out a smidge.
