Confession: I’ve run more in the past nine days than I have in past two months. I’ve had the baby and things haven’t seemed to be working right since then. It’s been a struggle for me and I know it’s the culmination of a lot of different things, but I know my running form definitely has something to do with it.
Before I always said I didn’t have time to run so it went on the back burner. There’s some truth in that so that’s why I wanted to do this #streakingwiththeCoolKids thing. Basically, I have to run or walk one mile a day for the month of June. It’s meant to get you active. I thought this would be the best thing to get me out there to run and just to start loving it again. Plus, I’m getting some extra cardio in my life which I definitely do need.
Today was day nine and it’s been working. I’ve been excited to get out there and I’m committed to running or walking a mile a day. One of my running friends said this was a good opportunity to rebuild my base of running and I’m hoping it rebuilds my base of enthusiasm for something I do love so much.
I’m also hoping to improve on my running form which has deteriorated but I’m pretty sure a lot of things happened during my pregnancy that caused this to happen. It’s just something I will have to work against. But I have been excited to run and I’ve been wanting to run more than a mile. It’s just been so stinking hot which makes it less enjoyable.
The most important thing is that I’m getting it done. It’s been nice to be out there and I’m hoping to continue. I’m optimistic about the future.
