Skyving of running

January 09, 2010
I've only managed to run once this week. It's a disgrace! But on Monday I caught the kids' virus, and puked my guts out. So on Tuesday I was feeling kind of wobbly, and on Wednesday I got my period and my pelvic floor felt like a hammock with too heavy a load in it.

Then came Thursday, and I managed to squeeze my run in, through snow and slippery roads. On Friday I took a day off, and I planned to run this Saturday, but then the Weather Forecast was all: 'Don't go outside, you might get hypothermia,' so I got scared.

Oh well, every day is the first day of the rest of my life, so tomorrow I'll just start again.

That's the great thing about running: it's always there for you, even though you weren't.

  3. I feel your pain. The last I ran was on Monday, then I became REALLY LAZY and took four days off. I attempted to run this morning and only managed to get TWO stinkin' miles in and then I had to walk in between the two miles. It was terrible! Apparently I can't EVER take a break from running. Not without paying the price.

  5. I found Jillian's 30 day shred at walmart for $9. That is a nice little zinger dvd that only needs a couple of handweights. (If you have a dart gun in the house, it is sort of fun to shoot jillian with it on the tv when she makes snippy comments) When I cannot get to the gym or run, I try to do it. Stay warm! I bet your next week will be better than your last.

  8. Yep, just like the Nike slogan - The road's are always open :) Running is like an old friend of mine, she never cares how long it's been since I last called her.
