As the month winds down, I’m looking to the future and trying to figure out what’s next. Part of planning that, however, is looking behind me. If you were to ask me how the month of May was, I’d tell you that it was awful. Horrible. But was it really that bad?
At the beginning of the month, I joined a local CrossFit gym. It’s been amazing! It’s so much fun getting to spend several days a week working out with some awesome ladies (it’s a gym just for women) and I’ve also gotten the opportunity to try some things I’d never have considered trying before! (Can you say “box jumps”?!) I’ve also made some great improvements in strength, each week I’m adding a bit more weight to the barbells!
The weather has been great this month as well, which means I got to spend some time doing some hiking with my favorite people.
And let’s not forget our first trip to the beach this year!
Then, we got to end the month with an amazing camping trip, filled with family, fishing, boating, kayaking and hiking! We seriously had so much fun! (I’ll be posting a recap with photos soon)
With so many amazing things that I got to experience this month, why would I say it’s bad? My half marathon. I’m sure by now you’ve read about it, either here or on Instagram, so I won’t recap it. But a week later, I’m still frustrated by it, and I think that’s tainting my view of things. Which needs to stop. My month has been great! I’ve had fun experiences with my family, I’m still able to run, and I have plenty of open doors on the horizon. So what’s next? I’m still not sure, but I’m not going to let one bad day effect my decision!
