New month, new goals

When the year began, my main focus was on getting healthy. I had decided to have no greater goal this year then to be well and healthy and solid. Well, doctor appointments in January changed that. My knee is what it is and I just need to be careful, but I'm free to do as I please. As for my shoulder, the MRI is next week and then I will know for sure. Physical therapy has helped a lot and I'm confident that my shoulder will be a-okay. With these turn of events, and basically having reached my goal of getting healthy or at least on the path, I think it is a good time to come up with some new goals. I have given this a lot of thought and don't want to go crazy, but I do want to up my movement and cardio. So February will be the month I start running again. It will be slow, and it will be only three times a week, but it will happen. It starts today. I will get on the treadmill on Sunday, Tuesday, and Thursday. That's, 3 days for the entire month of February. No time limits, no speed, no other expectations, just get on the treadmill 3 times a week. That is it. I will still be on the paleo challenge so that will all stay the same, I'm just going to add some running into the mix. Okay, I feel good about this. It will be good to go slow, not go crazy, and start running again.
