Day 109 ~ creed addiction, willpower & goals

Day 109 ~ February 24th, 2018

Today’s Calendar Word: ambuscade ~ an ambush.

I didn’t get much sleep last night… I feel asleep after 2am and then I woke up at 6:30am and ended sort of dozing on the couch after that until my son woke up. It’s too damn cold to do much else in the morning when you’re sleepy. I thought about doing my workout, but I clearly couldn’t muster the motivation to start it then.

Today’s Calendar Quote:Virtue is more to man than either water or fire. I have seen men die from treading on water and fire, but I have never seen a man die from treading the course of virtue.” — Confucius

I finally started playing Assassin’s Creed Origins this afternoon and it is so FUN!! I only had a few hours maximum of playing time today, but I’ll be able to play a whole bunch tomorrow. Looking forward to it!

#78 ~ Run a Half Marathon ~ DONE!

Alright so this happened on Sunday (September 4th)! I ran the Kelowna Wine Country Half Marathon and it was the longest distance in either official race, or just a personal run, that I have ever done. I thought the race photos might be out a little sooner, but it’ll be a few more days so I’ll post them when I have them 😀

Race start time was at 7AM and I was up just before 5AM to start a small warm-up before I even left the house and get a pre-workout into me too. It’s quite cold in the mornings already here, which is a little abnormal actually. I was very thankful that I coordinated what I was wearing perfectly for this run despite being so sleepy. And I was beyond thankful that it didn’t actually end up raining like the forecast said it was because that would have really sucked!
