It’s a cliché, but I am truly shocked about how quickly this year has past by! When I wrote my first post a year ago, I never would have imagined that I would keep this writing lark up (well, for the most part…) and that I would grow so much as a person over the following 12 months. It’s been a year of tears and laughter, acupuncture and injuries, parkruns and PBs!
After finishing my first year at drama school, I feel I have a better understanding of myself and my body, and I’m gradually beginning to learn how to listen to my body. I’m also learning about mindfulness, the importance of taking some time in the day for yourself and not putting unnecessary pressure on yourself. Here’s a short list of some of the things that I have done in the past 12 months.
- Survived the first year of drama school- no mean feat!
- Given up dairy
- Set a new 5K PB (27.26)
- Set a new 10K PB (57.43)
- Completed two obstacle course races
- Got my splits (on my right leg)
- Attempted yoga and pilates!
- Developed my cooking and baking skills
These are just a few moments that stand out to me, and I’m sure the next 12 months will be just as exciting and event filled!
Here’s to another challenging but fulfilling year!
