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

Just Get Outside And Run

Since my last snowy adventure on the Appalachian Trail (you can read that here) I haven't been back out running. I don't mind (so much) the cold on the trail, but running in the cold on the road, just hasn't seemed like fun. And, I'm pretty much over the treadmill at the moment.

So I've been cross training

But, with an upcoming race, I know I need to get some mileage in.

So today, I forced myself outside.
The temps were the low 30's so it wasn't terribly cold, but I had to give myself a pep talk to get out there. I wasn't feeling 100% (pesky hormones!)

But I'm glad I forced myself outside.

It was slow.

That's ok.

It wasn't necessarily easy.

That's ok.

Because, I got myself dressed, out the door, and ran. And today, that was exactly what I needed.

How about you? Did you take time for yourself today?

  1. Some good points here. When the weather isn't being too agreeable, it can be difficult to get yourself out there. But it's important to do it! Nothing beats a run outside. Looks like you saw some great views while out, too.

  2. Cross training! Sounds nice!Love your pictures!
