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

Recent Runs

It's been a little while since I've written anything. I've been struggling mentally with my runs. I've been giving up and just walking. This last week though I had a good 3 mile run - nice pace and I didn't stop. This weekend I had a nice 6 mile hilly run. I took water and walked a little more on the last mile than I had wanted to, but I was pleased with myself for the run. I walked not because I mentally quit but because physically I knew that I needed a break. My heart rate was very high and I was having difficulty breathing. I could feel myself starting to wheeze. Today I went for a short 2 mile run. It was extremely hot and humid in addition to an Air Quality alert. But I got a nice short run.

Tomorrow we are under a heat advisory. I'm thinking my cardio tomorrow will be swimming!

  1. Congratulations on running. Yes, today is suppose to be very very hot and humid. Today happens to be my rest day from yesterday's long run, so no worrying about melting out there today. Have fun with your swimming. Sounds like something in order with the heat.
