I mean really: UGH, you guys.

For any number of reasons, I am not getting back into the swing and flow of running on a regular schedule. I don’t know if it’s the holidays, the illnesses, the cold, or all of the above (most likely). Work stress has been getting to me as well … instead of running being a stress reliever, I’m stressed about fitting running in around all the work that’s been crammed between the furlough and the holidays. Sick children and wakeful nights don’t make for a restful night, which doesn’t make for ease in waking up for early morning runs.

If you’re skimming, just know that last block of text was: whine, whine, whine, excuses, whine.

So … last week didn’t measure up to the plan. Actuals:

  • Tuesday: Nothing
  • Thursday: 4.03 miles
  • Saturday: Nothing
  • Sunday: 3.31 miles

Le sigh. At least I passed the 75% mark to my 200 mile goal (since I started running again this summer).

This week’s plan:

  • Tuesday: 3 miles (already missed … maybe tomorrow)
  • Thursday: 4 miles
  • Saturday: 4 miles
  • Sunday: 6 miles

Waa, waa, waa.

  1. I’m not a runner, but I totally get it. Kids, holidays, work… my workout routine has become anything but routine. I *think* I’m going to get my butt into the gym later this morning, but only time will tell. I thought I’d get there Monday–and maybe yesterday–too…

    Good luck to you!
