I know my blog has been quieter than normal, and for that I apologize. Let me explain -
I have a confession - I have not run since my last half marathon on October 6th (recap coming soon). I was beginning to feel burned out from running, so I gave my body (and mind) some time off to figure out what I want to do seeing that I don't have another half marathon on the calendar until February when I travel to Jacksonville to run 13.1 with Donna. (wow that was a huge run on sentence)
I have struggled to lose weight, and most of it is my own fault. I had the mentality of "Oh, I'm running half marathons so I can eat whatever I want". I know that's not how I should be thinking, but the point of my blog is to be truthful, so that's what I'm doing.
Last week, I got this -
Bodyplex! I'm looking forward to participating in some classes and trying out spin and yoga for the first time ever! They have tons of free weights and machines to use as well as a great selection of cardio equipment.
Tomorrow night I'm running the Esprit de She Atlanta 5k event at Piedmont Park, and I'm really looking forward to it. I'm not going out with any expectations since it's been a minute since my last run, but I'm hoping this race will jumpstart my love of running again.
Have you ever needed to give yourself a break? What helped motivate you to get going again?
Until next time,
