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.

I ran my first 10K today. I was more than nervous. In fact, I was so nervous that I almost backed out. But, I knew I could do it. I was just afraid that I would be disappointed in myself. But in the end, I’m proud of myself.

The weather was nice - not too hot or humid and not too cold. I couldn’t complain. The route was flat, which was helpful. The route along the river, as usual, was beautiful.

Pacing is difficult for me. Not knowing how far I had gone or how much farther I had to go was difficult and distracting. We had water stops, but we didn’t have any one calling out times or mileage. But overall, I did ok.

I wanted to finish in an hour. I didn’t reach that goal, but I came close. I came in at 1:02:28. A 10:04 pace. I’m pleased with myself. It was tough, but I did my best. And for that, I am proud of myself.
