Starting over

Tomorrow is my first day at my new job. I am super nervous!! I am so tired of being the new person. I mean, seriously…this is my 4th job this year (5th if you count Mary Kay). So my life has  been a little crazy and unfortunately, it has had a negative effect on my fitness. There is only so much will power in a day and when you are being emotionally taxed it can be really difficult to make yourself do things like cook a healthy meal instead of eating cereal for dinner or go running for an hour.

Let’s just say I’ve…relaxed…a little on my health goals.

I went from an average 20-30 miles a week to about 4 miles a week. And usually, I would be super sad and probably write a series of posts about how sad it makes me. Probably agonize over how hard it will be to get back to where I was before. But the truth is

no time

The only thing left to do is just start over. I want to run another full marathon. I did it once, I’ll do it again. My time will be much better spent doing something about it rather than whining about it.

So I picked a date. I’ve got a half marathon on November 17th. I’ll work my way back up and then I’ll run another full marathon in the spring. And that’s all I’ve got to say about that.
