My Confession

Yes, it has been 11 days since my last run. There has been no activity other than trying to speed walk if I need to go anywhere (100-200 feet at a time). Am I discouraged? Yes. But at the same time, right now, I cannot really fit a run in. I'm exhausted to begin with and we had something and have something going practically every night last week and this week. Maybe once this is over, I'll feel better about going out after work for a quick 4 miles. But for now, I'm just going to give myself permission to take another week off.

I haven't even had time to live vicariously through running blogs. I don't have time to read them! My Runner's World sat unopened for two or three days before I got to it! Augh!!!!

On the positive side, I'm not eating as much because I can't say, go ahead, you'll burn it off fast. Speaking of eating, time to go throw supper in the crock pot so it is ready for tomorrow night - Brown Sugar Chicken (It is so good!!).

How man Hail Mary's for that confession? Sometimes life gets in the way, so we take a break and figure out how to get around it. You'll be back out there in no time.

I hope the new gig (job) is going well?

Funny how life gets in the way of running (and winter weather!). Hang in there. Life seems to have gotten in the way of someone's blogging as well... *grin*

Job is going well - finally feel comfortable. To make things better, my boss/pastor poked his head in my office before he left yesterday and said, "I'm glad you're here." Made my day! Still struggling with being away from the girls and not having time to run but, for right now, it is okay. Next week, things will free up.

Hey Rick! Looking forward to hearing what's been going on with you :-)
