Wow - almost a week since my last entry. Something tells me that that is NOT the way to build a following of regular blog readers....
I haven't been neglecting everything, for the record. My husband changed schedules at work again (we know his schedule, at most, a month at a time) and now doesn't get home until 7pm on weeknights. It makes for long days and hectic ones as well.
I have continued to run- though my distance and effort may be suffering a little. In some defense- it has been dreadfully hot here this week- high humidity and the only time of day I can run is 4pm-ish. That means I'm running on a treadmill, and it's not something I really want to do.
Coming off a long holiday weekend- I must say that I slacked. I ran on Friday, July 2 - and then didn't run again until Tuesday. I did run for 30 minutes though and even though it was the treadmill, it was a decent run and I kept a decent pace. Wednesday, I was going to rest from running- but after 15 minutes of being completely bored on the elliptical machine, I had the urge to run for a bit. I was crunched for time because of when I have to leave work to pick up my girls on time - so I jumped off the elliptical and ran hill intervals on the treadmill for 15 minutes. Short run but kicked up the intensity with the incline so in all it was a good workout.
Today is hot again- And I have about the same amount of time 35-40 min total. I'll be heading to the treadmill again and will get it done.
I have a very busy evening ahead of me- and I want so badly to say "to heck with it" on the workout side of things. But I KNOW that Rome was not built in a day- and taking a day off when you really NEED to do it can cause a period of inaction (see: last weekend). I know I will feel better afterwards, I always do. Then I will be glad I did it.
