This year I had two New Year’s resolutions. I have been doing my best to keep the first one which is writing more, but I hadn’t even started the second one, running again, for a number of reasons, including Covid. Now that that’s not an excuse anymore, I decided to stop wondering why I haven’t started or trying to plan when I would start and just start today. What was I waiting for, January is almost over!
I don’t just want to run, I want to make it part of my workout routine again. I began my routine with 46 minutes on the bicycle, then I did a 30 minute strength training video and finished walking and running for another 30 minutes on the treadmill.
I surprised myself by running more than I thought I was even capable of. I usually time myself with the songs I listen to while I’m running, today I started running halfway into a song and finished another one so it was about 5 minutes. I wanted to give up close to the end of the second song but I pushed myself to the end.
I know I can do better than that once I start running every day but it wasn’t bad for my first day back.

I’m an aspiring writer still looking for exactly what I want to write about, with a lot of creativity, imagination and desire to write.
I studied Writing and Rhetoric at Syracuse University where I explored many different sides of writing through my classes and extracurricular activities in order to narrow my search for an identity as a writer.
I have written for Citrus TV Noticias and La Voz magazine, both of which gave me the chance to explore different mediums in which to write in. Through Citrus TV Noticias I also gained experience in translating from English to Spanish and vice versa, which is also something that I would be interested in working on since I am fluent in both of these languages. I was also an intern at Syracuse University Press where I got hands on experience in what goes into actually editing and publishing a book.
Through out the last four years I have faced a lot of challenges, which helped chape the person I am today. After being in a tragic car accident, being in comma, having a Traumatic Brain Injury, and being in therapy for over a year, I am a new me, willing to face challenges and knowing how to deal with them. I want to write about my accident and life after it to help others, show them it can be done and help in any way I can.

One thought on “Working on my New Year’s resolution”
Just starting with a little bit, especially combined with other cardio is safer to avoid injury when strengthening those muscles activated specifically during running
