Week 3: WOMP!
Week 2 (recap I wrote last week and never posted) - The short week kind of threw me off, I missed that extra day to fit in a run. I was supposed to run on Tuesday and then it was raining cats and dogs. Then I told myself I would run Wednesday, but decided relaxing and chatting with my mom after work was more important than fitting in a run before cheer practice. Wednesday night Dave and I decided we were going to get up and run bright and early, but when the alarm went off we both decided that a few extra minutes of sleep were totally worth it. Are you sensing a theme???? When I finished up work on Thursday I knew I was going to do my run no matter what!
On the weekend, I had planned on running on Saturday morning, but by the time I got out of bed it was hot and a cold mimosa sounded way better than a run. It ended up working out for me, because Sunday was much cooler and I actually enjoyed my run. Although the runs haven't been quite as enjoyable as I remember them, I'm not feeling so easy breezy in my runs recently. I just keep telling myself it will get better. It will.
Week 3 – What can I say? I planned on running on Tuesday, I blew it off. I planned on running on Wednesday, I forgot my running stuff (I go straight from work to my parents’ house when I’m coaching). Thursday and Friday I was battling my headache. And the rest of my weekend was dedicated to the bachelorette party, football, and rest and recovery. I was lazy. I didn’t eat well. I was dreading every planned run.
And now I’m putting that week behind me. During my half training, I didn’t hate my runs. I wasn’t dreading them ahead of time. I need to remember how to love running and it started today. Dave and I went for a run in the park, we took it nice and easy, we walked when we needed to, and wouldn’t you know we finished 3.6 miles! I felt great, the weather was perfect, and it was just what I needed! I wish it wasn’t so easy to completely fall of the wagon for an entire week, but oh well. I know healthy living is something that I have to continuously recommit to, so all I can do is plan to do better this week and I started with a bang!
Have you been keeping up with your healthy intentions?
