I’m sure you see a trend with this week. A lot of walking. Yup, I’m taking some time off of running. I’m not being made to do it, but think it’s best to rest myself up before I hop back into actual half marathon training before the Women’s half in November. Part of me regrets signing up for the race with a goal of beating my PR, but I know it’s far out enough that I can woosah and relax a bit.
This is my mantra this week. It has to be. Did I hurt myself? Maybe. Do I push myself a little too hard. Yup. I know I am all over the place sometimes – full of energy and excited to teach again and bee-bop with my clients. So, I will focus on that. My people. I don’t HAVE to run right now. It took a little bit of tendinitis in my left foot to stick it to me.
Hubby has been right there with me, going on walk after walk. Which, no offense to walking, took some time to me to enjoy. I have been enjoying quality time with him and just goofing off and laughing. It’s been just what I needed with a lot going on in life right now – nothing bad, just a lot.
I’ve had to reprioritize my time with him and not be so focused on just getting up and running. Plus, who wouldn’t like a quick PiYo pose or four.
This has been a week of remembering my WHY. Why am I running around like a crazy woman, working ALL of the jobs?? Well, I want to be the best wife and partner I can be. I have put off focusing on a dream of exploring fitness as a way of living for so long and have had a very awesome year (thus far) of growth and change. Hubby knows it’s what I LOVE LOVE LOVE to do. So, when things get tough and I want to give up, I remember that WHY.
This weekend we head to OBX! The Outer Banks, NC that is! We’ll be enjoying time with our family – all of my cousins, we’re uber close – on the beach, in a big fun house, with lots of time to rest and sleep! The 13 hour drive will be interesting, but this time is MUCH needed!
