I have lost quite a bit.

I ran 8.3km this windy, cold Sunday morning with Sarah and I sucked it! It was the first time I had run in 8 days (ran 8k with Sarah last Saturday). This week was just horrible. It was filled with lethargy and drinking.

(Quick aside: I'm trying to have kid #2. I have been for a while - not a long time in the grand scheme of things, but long enough. I thought this was the month. It turned out not to be and well all motivation turned to lethargy. Boo hoo. I'm not here to write about that stuff though and so, on to running).

The drinking was fun. The lethargy was paid for today.

I'm not sure how I'm going to get through the zoo 10k next Saturday or what my plan is. I WILL run it, that goes without saying of course. It'll be the first time I run 10k. Ever. I'll guess I'll set goals along the lines of finishing and not dying! HA!

So, I've had enough of feeling sorry for myself and am now back to running and writing about it. And reading about people who do the very same thing.


  1. just keep going! & going. & going. & going. & going. you get the picutre.

    don't ever give up! :P you're incredible girl!

  2. I promise you have not actually lost any of your fitness in a week. It can feel like that after a short hiatus, but you'll get back into the swing easily. Cutting out the wine will help too. ;) (I should talk... I've been drinking almost every day since my marathon! UGH!)

    Get back on track this week and you'll do fine at the zoo!

  3. glad you are jumping back into it full-force! get back to a schedule that works best for you and good luck in your first 10k!


Thanks for joining in the conversation!
