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.

Frustrated – that’s what I am at the moment. I just completed a three mile run. It was a struggle from the very beginning, but I pushed myself on if you want to call it that. I think I saw a turtle moving at a faster pace. I did run a few hills today, but I am frustrated with myself. Since I’ve started back running, I can’t seem to break the 11 min per mile pace. It is frustrating. I had a better run time when I was run/walking. I was in the 9 minute range when I would run, recover and then run again. Now that I am trying to run without walking any, my time has dropped significantly which is very frustrating. I am hoping that if I keep at it and add in some speed work and hill work out that my time and endurance will increase. I sure hope so.
