The commitment is thirty minutes of exercise before midnight of any of the following format: running, jogging, a combination of running-walking-jogging, swimming, walking, attending a fitness class, stationary biking, biking, dance class, aerobic class, yoga, karate (or other martial arts). My ultimate goal is to run a second marathon. In order to do that I need to being able to run for 30 minutes again. My goal is to complete the running plan by doing it as a 28-week plan, which is a slower version of the eight-week Rodale run/walk plan. I'm going to shoot for doing one unit of the running plan per day, so that I can make some progress in my running plan. But all I have to do for my commitment is one half-hour of exercise per day, of any format above. I am doing this because:
I notice I procrastinate on excercise, just to procrastinate on running, but I notice if I do it earlier, get enough fluid ahead of time, get enough food as fuel, it really helps. Also, if I stick to the running program, it's easier to keep on jogging, rather than to go back to it, after week off. Only by running, does running get easier, and it really helps me to feel comfortable with myself and my body.

Thank you thank you jalla - for giving me permission to be gentle.
I faffed this morning, got sucked into internet. Used to have a really clear ritual which barred the internet til lunch time. I have slowly been undermining the ritual and am now back into old habits. It happens most often when I am tired, when a decision feels too hard... It is definitely an addiction, and ’just a quick look at the internet' is never just that, nor is it EVER more important or urgent than the task l am trying to do.
ate healthy lunch
now about to walk to the city. Fresh air will be good, rain and wind will blow and wash out the self-disgust. Buy veggies on the way.

THINGS I COULD HAVE DONE BETTER
i've said enough about this morning. Need to get into putting internet to sleep ritual and starting on time habit. But also, if i need rest, to stop early and have a nap.
THINGS I AM GRATEFUL FOR
S's thoughtful ear and treatment, bumping into R and M at E, bumping into G at the bus-stop, the lovely young chemist, the punctual bus, the cool weather, m's smiley, my strange dream, the peonies, jalla, the bath that awaits me right now.
