It’s been a little while y’all. There has been so much going on that I don’t know whether I’m coming or going. I had another rhabdo scare that took me out of any kind of training for two weeks. Then, my supervisor had her baby unexpectedly early and I’m left with winging her job and my own until she returns-and hopefully she will! On top of all that two of our ‘kids’ swore in to the military. One into the Navy and one into the Airforce. Both will be gone within the next few months to boot camp then to their stations. So much happening so fast!! Ahhh!!! Needless to say that I wasn’t able to do Nashville. I knew I couldn’t do the full and I didn’t want to take time off of work and travel to TN to run a half. It honestly just wasn’t that important to me. I did start back running this week with 3-3 milers and today’s 8 miler. Boy did I have to fight for those 8 miles. Hills, humidity and the danged wind was crazy!! I was absolutely drenched in sweat when I got back! I told myself to go retro in my thinking today. As in, act like I’ve never ran 8 miles before and that 8 miles is my biggest accomplishment. In an odd way it helped to get me through when thoughts like…you’re going so slow…just quit now it’s a bad run….etc…I’m so glad I finished it out!! I also ran on my new shoes!! I’ve been in Nike’s for road running for a few years now and I came to realize I was just having too many issues with them. Knees, metatarsals..etc. Today’s run with these babies kicked (albeit very slow) booty!! Even with all the hills my legs and knees felt awesome. I had slight soreness in my hips (as I do usually) but no actual pain like I had been!! 🙌🏻👍🏻👏🏻👏🏻 I think I’ve got a winner here which is a good thing since I just signed up for another 50k for redemption and for the full/5k combo of the Route 66 marathon! Now, I just need to be co sister with my runs and pray that my body cooperates!! #teamglukos #marathonmaniacs #halffanatics #doubleagent #wls #wlsrunner #runitfast #womensrunningcommunity #igrunners #runnersofinstagram #flexitpink #womenrunning #runshots #instarunners #sweatpink #garmin #fitness #runnerscommunity #rcrunneroftheweek #xtremerunnerslife #runnershoutouts #runnersrepost #beatyesterday #crazycompression #inspiringwomenrunners
