I admit it. I have been slacking on my running lately. I mean really this whole summer I’ve slacked in comparison to what I was doing before school got out. June was a pretty good month until the end of it when I went to Washington DC and GORGED myself on all the fantastic food! 🙂
Last week I ran 3 miles. Not all at once. 3 different times. WOW! I don’t think THAT’S going to get me to a 10k or half marathon anytime soon. And then when I don’t run as much what do you think I end up doing? You are so smart! I eat more! This entire summer I’ve been having an affair. With cookies-n-cream ice cream. HA! Gotcha!
Anyway-Monday I ran 1 mile at track practice ON FLAT GROUND AROUND THE TRACK.
Didn’t run yesterday. Thought about it. While I was holding the couch down.
Tonight I ran 2.6 miles with friends and thought I was going to puke or die. Dying would have been the preferred option! 🙂 We ran AFTER 7pm. Golly it was still like an inferno! And I don’t think it helped that I ate supper BEFORE I ran-pork tenderloin, mashed potatoes, broccoli, roll, banana pepper, and diet pepsi. 🙂 I really needed some motivation. Like cookies-n-cream ice cream waiting at the end. Or a $100. Or this song might have helped cause it always makes me feel like I can do anything!
Go ahead! You know you want to run around with your arms in the air!!!!!
Even though I was planning what my coffin was going to look like while I ran tonight, it was nice to be running with friends. That REALLY helps!
I think I need to sit down with a calendar for August and map out my running to keep me more accountable. August is always a crazy month because school starts back. You haven’t seen busy until you’ve been a teacher the 1st couple of weeks at the beginning of the year!! O.M.G. (And I worked in the business world until I was 33)
I actually used to lose my voice during the first few weeks of school when I taught kindergarten because of all the talking required. Thank goodness it’s different in the upper grades!
Here’s what I will turn into over the next few weeks-
When’s the most stressful time of the year in your job?
