So this week’s goal is to establish a work-out routine. …to get to the point where I can’t stand the thought of not working out and any excuses I make are excuses that free up my time so I can run. I’m not dreaming of the day I run five miles again as much as I’m dreaming of the day that I just need to run! Hmmm, working out is so much easier then! It’s all about the routine… the schedules… and making it a habit.
I was so looking forward to the time change, as it meant longer days and a chance for me to run after work. But…
Slight problem # 1: There was no sunshine yesterday or today, so the days don’t feel any longer. The morning just came earlier for seemingly no reason at all.
Slight problem #2: Not only is it cloudy, but an intensely cold rain (sometimes snow and sometimes hail) has been falling nonstop and flooding the nearby roadways. It’s the type of raw weather that chills you to the bone.
Slight problem #3: I sprained my toe on a kitchen chair (I totally did not mean to kick it); so now it’s swollen, red and oh-so-painful. … quite ugly too, I might add, so I am thanking God that flip flips are not yet in season. Anyway, I’m not quite sure that I would have been able to run on it tonight.
That said, I am very happy to report that — if the weathermen are correct — the next few days will be warmer, sunnier, and much more suited for a girl and her husband who are going to get back into shape. This means I can probably get a bit of a routine going. How nice is that going to be!
