Last week I ran twice. I LOVE running, but I have not been doing much of it. I was thinking the other day about it and I think I’ve figured out a possible reason. Besides being LAZY ha! Running is an outlet for me, much like it is for the majority of those who run. The thing is though, I have nothing in my life right now that really causes stress. I haven’t had those urges of “I have to go run right now or I will lose it.” We used to have those moments all the time in my previous job and if I didn’t go run I would’ve blown up. I am so grateful to not feel those moments anymore or come home crying every day, but honestly I do miss running. It’s hard and I’ll be the first to admit that once you are out of it for so long, it is ALWAYS hard to get back in. If you know me, I’ve been trying for like 3 years ha! But what I can say is, I love that it is always there as an option. It’s something I can do anywhere at anytime and that is a blessing that I will never take for granted. I know it will all come back as I’m really debating signing up for a half marathon, but I’m waiting for after January before I register, just to make sure I know where I’ll be in life.
It’s been cold, so I took full advantage of the treadmill.
Another day I ran and finished at 5:30pm and it was already dark, so I just did a short run.
Q: What motivates you?
Q: What does running mean to you?
Every Sunday the boy and I work out together in the morning. This Sunday we went and got breakfast and did a little shopping before hand. It was raining so I forego-ed the run to the gym this time.
I am putting together a running plan as I just signed up for a turkey trot, since I’ll be able to run one this year like I typically try. Look how awesome the shirts are!!
Pretty pumped to have something to look forward to training for. Like I’ve said previously, I want to sign up for another half marathon, but still waiting to find the right one for the right price.
