April recap/May goals

Oh yeah. April: check!

  • Apparently ab workouts and I have a rocky relationship. Following March’s great success, April was an abysmal fail.
  • I ran a 10k! It was in Iowa, and it was hilly. That sounds like a contradiction of terms, but it’s true. I beat my goal time, and the route kicked my butt.
  • I cooked! I made bagels, chicken fingers, dutch pancakes, and chicken cacciatore.
  • No Persuasion. Any tips for training myself to enjoy classic literature? I don’t know what do!
  • No expansion in the garden department, but my tomato and pepper sprouts are still doing great!

May! Summer is almost here! What joy! Goals:

  • Rumor has it that a community garden is being started just a couple of blocks from my house. I need to figure out how I get my name on a chunk of dirt, and then plant some veggies in that chunk of dirt.
  • Memorial day weekend backpacking trip with some friends. Can’t wait!
  • Bike. Must bike. Triathlon is coming!
  • Keep running. Long run on the weekends, with some sprinting added in during the week as I’m able. I want to get faster.
  • Cook! I want to try my hand at a basic salad dressing, apple dumplings, stuffed chicken breast, and a new cookie recipe that’s yet to be determined.

My life is going to get busier by the day, straight through July. Bring it on!

I wanna know: What are you going to do to make May awesome?

  1. Classic literature is classic because it’s timeless. I.E. it’s relevant to you. The key is to tap into that.

    Also key is to set goals the way you would set running or cooking goals. A chapter a day, 100 pages a week, whatever works. I have been productively tearing through books before work at the pace of 15 minutes a day. Maybe try setting a timer and reading for 15 minutes when you get home from work? Some days you’ll read 5 pages, some days you’ll read 30 but the point is that, just like with anything else, you turn reading into a habit!

    • I’ll keep you posted! I have some granny smiths left over from a pie. Share any tips you might have 🙂 I’ve never tried apple dumplings.
