It’s been a busy few weeks here – I continued running but was unable to meet the goal of 5k by the 16th. That’s ok, it’s been great to be back at the gym. More important, my son comes with me nightly and looks forward to it each day! This journey hasn’t ended and roadblocks happened, but I’m so proud of my son.
Let’s see what these next few weeks bring as I journey back to running daily.
It’s been a few days since I set my goal of running, and I’m starting to realize the next immediate goal I need to set is relating my daily food habits. Trying to run while having the bloated feeling is not ideal, and carbs seem to always be my goto for snacks… And I understand the need for carbs, I’m just not at the point in my journey where I need to worry about a lot of small details yet.
Similarly, I need to increase my daily water intake. Not much to expound on here.
In 3 days I’ve run 5 miles total. I’ll take it!
Reflecting on my love of running and how important it was in my life really encouraged me to set a goal and get back out there. So here I am. By April 16th, 2018, I will be back running a 5k 1-2x a week. I miss it! I’m heading to the gym now to start on the treadmill again and will keep updates here.
