Running has not been going well. Or rather, running hasn’t happened in almost two weeks. I don’t really have an excuse. A few all-nighters and a lot of 18 hour days have been going on around here. I have been adjusting to the new job I absolutely love. The big event I hosted is over. Both Princess and Buckaroo are doing well. And somehow I am still maintaining a 4.0 in both of my classes. Yes. All of that going on at the same time will get in the way of running. If I allow it too. Which somehow I did. You see. It was my choice to come home from work and get into my PJ’s rather than my running clothes. It was also my choice to say F someone’s impossible expectations I am taking an hour to myself. And actually taking that hour to myself. But most importantly it was my choice to not make the time for something that is very important to me. Yes. I see a pattern too. And a bad habit that continues to get in the way of not just my running, but my “me time”. Weekends away. And a vacation. Yes. I will continue to work on it.
So I have a little over six weeks until my race and I am starting my half-marathon training again. I know. It would be easier to just say f-it, but I could never forgive myself. So I will get out there when it cools down this evening. Put one foot in front of the other. And make it happen. I am not worried about my pace or finishing time. I just want to finish strong. And I think I can get my body and mind ready enough to do just that in six weeks. So yes. I am starting my half marathon training over. Or at least it feels that way. But the truth is, I am not starting over. I am picking up where I left off. It’s the f-ing first step that feels the same as starting over. But I know me. Giving up is not an option.
Stay tuned for a review. Job goings on. My June reflection(s) and July goals. Not necessary in that order. And of course, I sure look forward to seeing what you all have been up too
What have you done today to be active?
What’s for dinner? The boys are having pulled pork sandwiches (crock pot) and I am having a green salad with all the fixings.
How are you doing?
Until next time, always be true to yourself and think like a boss!
