I’m supposed to be preparing for my first 5K. I started off strong. I was determined to carve time out of my day to focus on running. Then I tanked. Why does this always happen!? I do this ALL of the time. The excuses come crawling back. First it was just WAY TOO HOT to run. The air was thick and humid. You couldn’t pay me to grab my gear and hit the pavement. I’d be drenched in sweat just tying my shoes. Then I got a cold and was paranoid that I would get pneumonia again. I recovered quickly but still haven’t run in two and a half weeks. I’m starting to let all the excuses get in the way again; cleaning, laundry, soccer practice, oh and that little thing I was craving…sleep.
So now the guilt and nerves are setting in. Two more weeks and I’m not ready. I mean I know it’s only 3 miles and I know I can do it and be fine, but I really wanted to breeze through it and be prepared. It’s time to psych myself up and get running. No more excuses. I’m going to head over to my fitness board on Pinterest and get inspired. Tomorrow is another day. A new start. Time to get moving again. I want to do this and I want to do this well. Wish me luck!
