Still trying to stick with running

but it has been so hard! No time, no energy, no nothing! Ugh.

Ran tonight while Taylor swam; it was actually better than I expected, as I did almost 5 km in about 34 and a half minutes. But I did run slow and take it easy and walked the first 3 minutes of that 34. Struggling badly to find time and energy. Thinking that I need to work and not exercise. Should be doingboth.

November 17

Ran alone; wasnt sure i would as i have soccer tonight but I decided it would clear my head so I went. Even tho I thought I was putting effort into it; apparently I wasnt cause I only went 4.7 km in 34 minutes or so and there were not loads of hills SIGH at least I am still going right?

Ran with Tonya - uphill for first long while then downhill some. Short because we started later. Good run. Warm weather.

November 12

ok I totally recommend running with a buddy all the time. I had way more fun and went further and felt better. And the weather was nice. I cannot believe i am running in november in shorts.

Tonya and I went tonight from the pool; we went around town where it was well lit, and not too hilly. It was dark and there were hazards like white binding tapes that jumped off the sidewalk and wrestled Tonya to the ground.

Excellent getting back into it run :)

Friday November 7

Ran 35 minutes in the pouring rain. It was not raining when I left home. and I didnt really mind it at first. But it got very dark and I realised the people in this neighborhood drive like maniacs! Its like every corner is an opportunity to see how well the car grips the road at excessive speeds. UGH. So I was running on the side in puddles as deep as my ankles and it was NOT a good experience. When I got back to Wilson Mountain road (dirt aka mud rivers) I was just like THIS sucks. And it is all up hill and I was soaked. I was pissy. Then Scott came along home and picked me up, and I stripped and showered and felt somewhat better. not a terribly successful run. I should have waited for Saturday. Who knew? Maybe I will go again. Or to the gym. Yeah the gym. haha

Did it, managed to make myself run again tonight, while Taylor was swimming. Thought I put a lot of effort into it but didnt have a great time; about 35 minutes for 5 k but I did stop and walk 2 times for a minute; Better next time :)

SO Hard to get back up on this pony

Trying to get going again after being un-running so much lately is really hard! It's almost harder than starting the first time. :( Because I know how hard it was to build up to longer and longer runs.
But Im really trying to keep going after all this time and work I dont want to stop. I need to make more time in a day. I need to work harder to get the runs done.

November 3: ran while Taylor was at swimming; did 3 10's and 1 minute walk between. It wasnt hard but I figure I should build back up again. Running in the dark was a little different and although I liked it, I might want to stick to better lit places than the trail. Almost got hit by a car who didnt stop on the cross walk. Ugh. That was well lit.

Trying again for Wednesday.
