Starting Over . . . Again
Come September I got a new job. A job I had been trying to get for years! A job that I absolutely loved, but this new job left me less time to workout and that was he beginning of the end. I now found myself getting up at 5:30 in the morning and always cutting my run short in order to make it to work by 7:30. That then turned to sleeping in and skipping the run all together.
Of course then Officer P got his promotion and things got even crazier. I didn’t run for 3 weeks, the ran 8, 9, and 11 mile runs back to back to back weeks. Then it was time to move and I didn’t run again for 3 weeks and then ran Tinker Bell, between Tink and PHM I only had one 9 mile run. After this I was only running 1 day a week, when officer P would come to visit. I then had the great idea to run the Diva Half. That made 3 half marathons with pretty much no training at all.
I keep trying, in vain, to get back on track, but I have decided now is the time. I am trying to be okay with starting over from the beginning, but honestly I am struggling with it a bit. In my mind I keep comparing myself to what I use to be. Hopefully I can get back there sooner rather then later, but I am going to try and take it one day at a time.
