Why is it so easy to fall off the wagon, and SO DANG HARD to climb back on?
I tell myself that I am over being mad at myself…and am OKAY with where I am in my running and ACCEPTING of where I am not…..
(but it still ticks me off)
I need to get over myself and focus on what I CAN do instead of what I used to be able to do. *SIGH*
Okay, vent over.
I have gotten so much support around here that I almost feel guilty about whining!!!
I’ll move on to a run report instead.
Since R was gone all of last week, running was out of the question. Can’t exactly leave the kidlets home sleeping at 5 am to go run!
R got home Saturday, so I was out the door Sunday morning…although a little later than I had hoped for. I left about 6:15 and got about 4.5 miles in….still on the run/walk routine.
Picking routes now is tough…I try to make sure I am running north/south when the sun decides to barrel over the horizon so that I don’t get blasted in the face.
But it was still HOT. Even that time of the morning, I was dying of sweat! I cannot wait for cooler weather to show up someday.
It’s hard for me to say I enjoy my runs lately….seems all I do is beat myself up mentally, sweat like a pig, and wonder how the heck I am going to last for 13 miles come November.
Micheline, gotta love her, doesn’t seem worried!!! I think she is in denial. Or something has happened to her brain after living with an Ultra Runner for so long. Me, on the other hand – I AM WORRIED!
62 days from today, to be exact.
My goal for this week is going to be a long run of at least 5.5 miles – hopefully 6. I have one of my old routes up to my parents’ house that should work.
On a lighter note…….we are heading in to one of my FAVORITE holiday seasons:
I am home tomorrow, so am planning on dragging out the decorations and T can help me after preschool!
I am a Halloween freak……I loooooove decorations and every year we hold a big neighborhood party in our driveway…potluck style, fire pit, beverages (both adult and kiddie!) and it is just a ton of fun. I am so looking forward to it again this year!
Which reminds me……I’ll share some stupid Halloween humor!
Anyone know what these are?
C’mon……… you know.
