As I’m sure you are aware….my running week restarts every Monday. Some days I have to fight with my inner self to get up and just go, but other days not so much. The first week of Christmas break was awesome…I stayed in North Augusta, SC and was able to link up with my sole sistahs of BGR! Augusta (click here for a recap of last week). Here it was the last week of break, and I was struggling to get up to go out for an early morning run (looking forward to going back to work and getting life back on track (did I just say that LOL)). It’s never hard for me to get up to run with someone else but week 3 was a challenge for me. I was back home and the weather sucked the first couple of days during the week and as you are quite aware…nothing ever goes as planned….
Running this week was almost non-existent. Okay, it’s not what you’re thinking. I haven’t lost my mojo (again/yet). Very much still dedicated to the sport (YEAH running is a sport). It just wasn’t enough days in this week… especially with me traveling and the rain (OK, yes I run in the rain but this was a downpour).
Well if you read last week’s post, you probably figured I was traveling back home on Monday from an AWESOME weekend in Maryland. Needless to say I didn’t get a run in on that day. Figured I would just do it on Friday since all I had to do was ride the bike. But things never go as planned (story of my life)….
It rained almost all day Sunday, so needless to say I didn’t get my long run in at the start of the week. I did however, go long on Monday morning. I woke up without a doubt in my mind that I would go out for a run. I met up with a BGR! Columbia member at 5:00 am and we headed out for a 12 mile run. We didn’t quite make the 12 miles but I did get in 11. Yeah I know I could have stayed a little longer to get in that last mile, but I was late getting back home to get ready for work. Hey looks like my energy has turned around…this was a great run!!!
