So yesterday I wrote about not feeling like working out, and today was no different. I woke up very tired and just no energy. I was coughing and sneezing due to allergies and worried about my husband.
Thank you to all who commented and wished him well! He is much better today! Fever is gone, he's got some hunger back hoping on the road to recovery.
I left church after our first service today so I could be home with him in case he needed anything, but in the back of my mind I was thinking "I will run today".
As time went on I got sleepier and lazier as the afternoon went and finally I got up around 2pm put my running gear on and headed out. I bought some new Hoka One One's because my others were starting to wear down and I don't want to be left without my fav shoe!
Today was about 67 degrees, cloudy sky with chance of showers. It never rained and the sun actually came out a few minutes, but whoa I can't handle this heat! Yes, I said its 67, but if you've ever run you know just how hot your body temperature gets and with it hotter it takes a lot out of ya!
I am not sure how I am going to make it through the summer months to be honest, I might have to break my runs up to short runs and run every day. I'm not sure yet. Once I got home I soak my feet into ice water to help cool them off and ease my neuropathy down. This has helped quite a lot actually the last few weeks.
I ended up running 3.80 miles in 47.26 minutes, that was a lot longer than I would have normally, but I walked quite a bit this time. That is okay because the key here is "I DID IT!" I got off my duff and worked out and I have been smiling every since! There's nothing like feeling like you've accomplished something for yourself and working out does it.
So, whatever has been stopping you get up and make your way to the gym or outside for a walk it doesn't matter what just do something!
Did you survive the Easter rush of candy?
