Using An App To Help Me Stay On Path

Hello there you blank beautiful screen. It's been awhile. I took a little time last week to just step back, disconnect, and honestly breathe. I felt myself needing a breather and a moment to adjust to going back to work (part-time), Lil Man going to school full time, soccer and running for him, and just daily life. You know what I mean.

My typical morning is starting to consist of some type of early morning workout, rushing home to get lunches made, making sure I'm back in time so hubby can get to work, grabbing a quick shower, getting Lil Man to the bus stop, finally getting breakfast for me, packing my work bag, getting laundry started, cleaning up the kitchen, taking the dogs in and out and in and out...  and if possible I try to get caught up on email/social media before I head into work.

But I'm back and feeling a little more like I have things under control. I think I'm finding

The Weather is Turning Colder

It’s been difficult to run lately. The weather has changed here. It is much cooler, and it is making it difficult for me to ‘get out there’. I purchased a cheap exercise bike in the attempt to try to stay in shape since I couldn’t run as often. I have to say though that I hate the bike.

I was able to get out and run this Thursday and Friday. I was disappointed in my first run this week. I ran a little over three miles, but my pace as terribly slow. The run on Friday was faster, but it left me too sore that I didn’t run today. I am hoping to run tomorrow even though it is supposed to be colder.

The true Runners keep telling me that it will get easier, but I can’t say that I see that happening yet. I can see that I am stronger (some days) than I have been in the past. And then (some days) I feel as if I have never run before.

I think my biggest obstacle is myself. If I get tired – I quit. And this frustrates me about myself. But, in my own defense, I have to say that I haven’t given up. I may stop and walk some steps, but I continue to get out there and I continue to run.
