I did manage to get out there yesterday and go for a run. I repeated the same run I did the time before on the same trail and it was nice. My wonderful husband postponed going to work (it is nice when you work for yourself!) so I was able to get my son on the bus at 7:30 and then go for my run. It was nice to be a little more awake and have the blood flowing a little more before I hit the road!
What was also nice was that I felt a little more able to push myself than I have been of late. Again, I think the physical part has been there all along, so I think the mental aspect is starting to come back. I need to find a way to get in a workout tomorrow or Friday since my hubby went out of town and I'll be on my own with the kiddos. I know I can take my daughter with me in the stroller and I suppose I will if I can't work anything else out, but really, I just want to go alone (hear my toddler whining voice there?)!
Also, I am pretty far away from hitting the 5K mark. I should have been there by now, but alas, I am not and so I am thinking that I am going to run the two mile race again next weekend and will attempt to better my time from the first race (20:54!). There is another 5K I can run in early October and I think I am going to shoot for that one. Sorry if I am letting anyone down, but I'd like to run an entire race and not have to stop and walk, so this is the direction I am going. I've adjusted the path I am taking to get there, but the goal remains the same... I will finish C25K and will continue to run because I know it is what I need to do to BE healthy and promote healthiness to my children. If ever there was a good reason to stick to something, that is it. And for that reason, because I love my children and myself and I want to live long to see them grow to be health,y happy adults, I remain convinced as ever that no matter how tough it may seem at times, I CAN DO IT!
