Happy Workout Wednesday! Today I am pleased to report that I completed every single run on my flexible training schedule for the Shamrock Shuffle 🙂 This is the first time I ran 3x in a week in 2015. Pat on the back for me!
As you know, I’ve been thinking a lot about self-care lately. Not only in the physical health way, but in the mental health way. I have been more stressed out than ever this year, with health problems plaguing my family, an internship, a job, classes… It just never seems to stop. It got me to thinking about why I’m adding this running plan into the mix. I mean, wouldn’t that be more stressful?
I realized that running calms me down. There were very few times in my life that I was happier than when I started running regularly. All those endorphins… All that race bling. I’ve missed it.
Perhaps running does add another item to my to do list, but it’s something I really want to do. It’s something that makes me happy and gives me an outlet for my frustrations.
Here’s what I did last week:
Thursday: A 30 minute tempo run with the Duggars.
Don’t judge me too much for loving 19 Kids and Counting…
Saturday: 2.5 mile easy run
Sunday: 3 mile long run!
There you have it! Now you guys know I watch a lot of TLC while on the treadmill. I ain’t even embarrassed. This is, however, part of why I won’t get cable for my apartment. If I had cable, I’d watch Keeping up with the Kardashians all day, every day! I’m trying to finish grad school here! Gotta focus 🙂
Have a great Wednesday and talk to you all soon!
Do you watch bad TV too?
Do you like to run with music/TV/audiobook or do you prefer complete silence?
