Do I still love to run? Yes!
Am I committed to getting back on a regular running schedule? Yes!
When will this happen? I don’t know!
Life gets in the way. The government fiscal year ended last Friday and the Jewish holiday started last Wednesday night. I feel like I haven’t sat down and vegged since the beginning of August. I went from one busy season to another. I’ve been very tired before, but never at this level. I go to bed tired and wake up still tired. So what does this mean? Simple…I do what I can. I have 2 races scheduled for October. Running them isn’t a problem because I have realistic expectations.
I’m trying to get back to "regular" work and running schedules, but honestly I’m so exhausted at the end of the day I can barely see straight, let alone run. To decompress today, I "kidnapped" my friend Melanie Spring from her office and went for a lunch-time walk with her and her dogs.
So until I get my running back on schedule, I’m gonna walk as often as I can. AND I"m not taking my mobile phone! Yesterday I had a meeting downtown and ended up walking from Dupont Circle to the White House and back. During Rosh Hashanah I walked almost 13 miles. I love it. No stress, no worries, no time/pace. 🙂
Will I run again? You betchya!
When? As soon and as often as I can! I have this Sunday on my training schedule.
