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

Perspective

This is my drop back week... talk about perspective. I remember when I started running longer distances how 10 or even 8 miles seemed like a really really long way.  Now my 11.5 miler tomorrow doesn't seem so daunting. It was supposed to be 13, but my running buddy and I decided to pick up the pace on the last half of the long run. Since her plan calls for 11, and we are picking up the pace, I decided to drop mine back to 11.5.

We plan to run the first half of the run as normal, slower easy pace. Make our midway pit stop (bathroom and refill any necessary water bottles). Then on the last half of the run (the goal) is to pick up the pace.

I have plans for a spa day after this long run. So I am super excited for tomorrow.
