It’s time to really kick off the new year. My January 2015 Right Now features what I’m eating, scheduling and reading. I’m excited about what the new year has in store and look forward to sharing some of favorites with you each month. Here’s what I’m loving right now:
This recipe. It’s easy to make, filling and a great way fuel my long run each week. It also works wonders when it’s cold, rainy and all gloom and doom outside. Hello, warm! It takes some time to cook but makes a great freezer meal.
My spring race schedule is set! I’ll kick off 2015 with Rock n Roll Arizona this weekend then have a break until serious training starts in February and racing again in March. Rock n Roll DC and Shamrock, where I’m pacing the 1:52 group (yay!) are back to back in the middle of March and things wrap up with my target spring half in May. I’m excited to have chosen the Prairie Fire Half Marathon in Wichita for both my Kansas race and target spring race then wrap things up with the EquiKids Cross Country 5k.
I’m reading Mark Divine‘s The Way of the SEAL for the second time. My first read was just that. I read and took what I could from the book. When I cracked it open for the second time, my intentions were to start practicing the techniques and skills described in the book to see how I could benefit. From the moment I began to reread the first chapter, I knew it wouldn’t be that simple. I’ve reassessed my goal of implementing all 12 methods at once and have elected to work through two chapters each month. I spend 30 minutes, twice a day specifically working on the principles Coach Divine describes is his best seller and sporadically during the day. As I work to have better control over my thoughts and emotions, I’m excited to share my progress as the year moves forward.
That’s what I’m loving in my January 2015 Right Now and I hope you give the stew a try while registering for a spring race and settling down to pick up a good book.
