Well, I’ve been a slacker when it comes to my blog and my running updates. I apologize…so here is a mini update.
November total miles: 60.76 December total miles: 19.42
Yep, you read that correctly. Can you believe the December total?? It’s utterly embarrassing and although I hate to put it out there for the world to see, I need to be accountable. I have not run since December 13th. That is just horrible and not like me. I didn’t just give up, I got lazy. I think with the holidays approaching, I just didn’t feel like going and made every excuse not to go. Then, the end of the month, allergy season set in and I just felt horrible. I know if I had just run, I would have felt fine, but like I said excuses. Then, I went home to visit my mom for a week and did nothing. Absolutely Nothing!! I definitely feel that in just a few short weeks, my body feels different and looks different. I hate it!
The good news to come out of all this and I always look on the bright side, I was able to increase my miles. I was able to hit 8plus miles. It felt amazing and it proved to myself that I can do this. I was supposed to run my first half in February, and unfortunately, because of a prior commitment, I don’t think I’ll be able to. I’m really upset. It was a hometown run and I felt that would have been a great place to start, but it’s okay. I do have my eye on a few others and I’m going to rock those!!
So, in the end, I didn’t finish the year the way I wanted to. I wanted to rock 1000 miles this year and I think in the end, I hit around 600. All I can do is take this anger and turn it around. It’s a new year, a new month, and a new day. I can do it and I will. I hope that you will join me during this upcoming year as I promise to blog more and share more!! 🙂
