this month + thank you
So let's kick off a new month with new things to look forward to. It's finally peach season and i'm obsessed. I can eat 3 peaches in one sitting. They make the perfect breakfast, snack, or dessert! And along with it corn on the cob is in season. How great is it that we can now add it to our Summer BBQ's and dinner outdoors? There's so many corn stands along my drive home, it's nice to get a few cobs straight from the farmer to cook that very night.
I've also starting to dabble in a little running every other night using a couch-to-5K training program. So far, so good, but running is not my best quality. It's always been tough for me as an adult for some reason, even though I played so much soccer as a child (I even reffed!). My endurance is low (it's not like i've been getting much cardio these past few years), and my pace is averaging 8 mins/km... but i'll get there eventually. I ran 3.6 km last night, and I hope to run a 5K (and possibly a 2K before that) this October. It's just a fun walk/run so there's no real pressure except finishing, which is nice. Mostly though, I just decided enough was enough. Being a graphic designer i'm sitting A LOT, and it's starting to hurt! I feel like i'll be in some major trouble down the line if I don't start getting more active now. It's been nice getting outside. I don't know what i'll do come Winter (many, many layers I suppose), but i'll figure it out!
What are you most looking forward to this August? How has your Summer been? Time just flies by, doesn't it?
