I have not gone out for a run since 8/3. Shame on me!
I was doing really well on my training program, fitting in runs during long work days or making them up on my rest days and I fell off the bandwagon. Last week work left me emotionally heavy, which led me to feeling unwell physically and had an overall lack of motivation. Yesterday, we had a debriefing at work in regards to the events that occurred last week and it felt so good to sit with my peers and just talk about it. We grieve because we care and form bonds with the patients and their families and when we lose someone it leaves you with such a heavy heart.
I may have sat on the couch all week and watched every episode of Orange Is The New Black, and if you haven’t watched it, go!! It’s streaming on Netflix and it’s beyond amazing, seriously!
Anyway, my last run on 8/3 was a 10-miler. Last week I missed a 3m, 5m, 3m and a 7-mile run. Yesterday, I was supposed to run 3 miles but we had a monsoon here in Pennsylvania, so it’s 6 miles today and the weather is just perfect! 75 degrees with 40 percent humidity 🙂
Just two more weeks until the Disneyland Half Marathon, so I need to get it together.
Have a great day!
