Swell Time

Moving forward, just not sure where we're going, but at least we're having a swell time when we do it.


The last two weeks have been rather difficult for me. I have had to make myself not go running. After being used to moving stopping is difficult. I would imagine it is nearly as difficult as asking a kid to freeze when they play freeze tag. Kids don’t like to sit still. They need to wiggle.

Each morning I wake up thinking I should go for a run. The fact that it’s written on my calendar reinforces this feeling. But then I stand up and my foot aches. So I resign myself to saying one more day of rest.

This close to a big run it’s really not worth it. I expect my cardio may not be where I want it to be. And on race day my legs might feel a little rusty from all the time off. But my foot will thank me.

Disney Princess Half Marathon, here we come!

    My colleague told me the other day, “stop thinking about running and just go and run”. You may need some of that. 🙂 good luck!

    Thanks, I actually have very little problem with the starting running, it’s the stopping running when I’m getting injured that I have issues with. I am getting better at it though. With a half marathon this weekend, there is no need risking a foot injury that will sideline me.
