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

Still Recovering

Sooooo.. I was told not to run any farther than 3 miles until I had no pain while running (with a NO cheating thrown in there). I did make it 3 miles on the treadmill today (yeah!), but I had slight pain in my calves and behind my knees (boo!). Also, I usually run with the incline at 1%, but I had to keep it at 0% today. I guess that means I'm still recovering from the Half. This has thrown my training schedule off, but thankfully I'm not freaking out about it (at the moment). It's also going to be off the next couple of weeks; I'm just trying to make the best of it.

I'm happy that I'm able to run 3 miles and that things are improving. I did yoga today and was very surprised at how tight everything was. But I was also shown some stretching exercise to help with my knee.

So it looks like tomorrow will be another 3 miler and see how it goes.
