Through Instagram one of the lovely ladies I follow @hannahlarson42 issued a challenge for the New Year. It's called #45MilesInJanuary and you can walk or run the miles, but the goal for the month is 45 miles - using that hash tag to stay motivated and accountable. I have not tackled anything like this, ever. Ever since I joined the Army and injured my ankle, then knee, then through another stroke of bad luck gained a serious amount of weight it has been a struggle to run consistently at all. My soccer coach from high school would be so disappointed. He had us running 5 miles every practice. Needless to say, after my time in the Army I have had a serious lack of exercise routine in my life. I started yoga about 19 months or so ago, but again no real routine. I plan to stick with yoga though. I really do enjoy it. I wish studio classes did not cost so much. To stay motivated, with yoga at least, I signed up for a level 2 yoga class at school for the spring semester. The class is twice a week, so at the very least I will have that.
