|I look a bit old here, but am happy..|
I was only able to get in 2 runs this week, but managed to work in IT Band stretches 3 days, as well as some Wii work outs. It’s a start right?
Been a rather rough week, knowing my husband leaves on Friday, but I’ve tried to channel my emotions with writing, school, and my workouts as in-frequent as they still are right now. I know I’ll “get there” and I will get my issues worked out, but right now I am doing what I can to hang on to each moment with my husband before leaves. I am trying to give him his space to play his computer games and wind down before he has so much stress put on his shoulders. But I do find myself hugging him more often, wishing he was near, more often.
With this added stress I too am trying to build bonds with my daughters as both are Daddy’s girls which adds to my weight while he is gone. They “want” and “need” Daddy…so far I am just an afterthought and disciplinarian. I hope to find a common balance while he is gone.
My little Sophia loves to go to the gym with me, so I look forward to giving her big sister some quiet time while we work out a few times a week. Once spring hits in a couple months I will be back to running outside.
I have four weeks left of school. FOUR. Four weeks and counting until I finish my Graduate degree, obtaining an MBA in Health care Management. I started this schooling journey back when my eldest daughter was merely one years old…and I will finish it in her 12th year of life. It has been a long and tiresome journey, but another I needed to complete no matter how many hours of sleep I lacked. Once this journey is finished I will venture to my next which is training for this marathon.
My current goals are to get in shape and eat better before my “real” marathon journey begins in a few months. I want to be able to run more than 3 miles without having to stop and walk, and I want to rid myself of aches and pains so that I can run with peace and joy. That is my goal. For today…
