|Because confession is good for the soul.|
The other day I came across a guest post from Elise at That’s comma with a K. She was talking about her running in The Color Run on Motivate Me Monday (which is a weekly feature on For Love of a Cupcake). I thought “that race looks really cool” and decided to see if they have one near me. In fact they do in Charlotte, and now I really want to do this race.
Here’s where the confession part comes in. I haven’t gone running in a really long time. I checked my Daily Mile training, and my last actual logged run was in March 2011. So I figure that I better treat myself like a newbie and start out with a brand new 5K training program. (If you want to be friends on daily mile, search for auzeybreezy).
That everyone I know who has tried the Couch to 5K program seems to like it, so I downloaded that to give a shot. But what am I thinking? I’m going to start a running program at the end of June in South Carolina? The high tomorrow is supposed to be 96 degrees before the heat index. Oh and by the way, I know I’ll be running in the afternoons because I am not a morning person. It’s going to be a hot summer, and I’m probably going to need encouragement from y’all.
I’d like to be a morning person. I used to be. Maybe I’ll make it one of my July goals to start transitioning some of my runs to in the morning. I know it would make the Mister happier if I were a happier person in the morning. Remember the mantra in our house is “Give me coffee and no one gets hurt.”
A quick check-up on my June goals is not so great. I’m eating breakfast some days, but I’ve skipped mornings this week. And not eating out is really hard. I do better when I make a meal plan. And hey, it’s okay. Most of my goals were things that I want to establish in my life, so I’ll keep trying until I get there.
I’m only working a half-day today because it’s the Mister’s birthday, and I have a cake to bake this afternoon. A Happy Birthday post is going up later today, but if you want to give him some birthday love, holler at him on twitter – @dshawman5.
