I had lost my focus and momentum over the last 6 weeks due to multiple stressors, but I'm back. This morning I ran my first 30+ minute training run, and it felt good - both physically and mentally.
Friday I worked out on the treadmill upstairs, and it wasn't bad. I have been worried about how I was going to keep my training up during the long, dark, rainy winter - and had lost my will power over food yet again. Last week I ate a whole package of Oreo cookies - the cream ones not the chocolate. I love them!! Today I feel much better and will get some healthier foods in the fridge to keep me on the straight and narrow. I am on my way up to see my Mom & Dad, so hopefully she has not baked anything I can't resist. That Woman can COOK!
In one month I will walk the half at the Seattle Marathon. My friend, Maureen, is going to walk it with me. I am looking forward to it...but it is going to be COLD. Then it will be the Jingle Bell Run in Bellingham WA on December 12th. I am also registered to run the half at the Vancouver BC Marathon next June. That should be good motivation to keep me going!
I am so glad I started down this road - it feels good to take control.
