Gotta Run

Wednesday, 6-1-2016

The hardest part about trying to get back to running is the urge to procrastinate.  Specifically, I really, REALLY don’t want to get out of bed in the morning.  This morning I did not run, even though I had planned to.  In fact, I slept in my running clothes to make it easier.  But when my alarm went off…

I will run this evening and I will be glad I did, then I will run again Friday morning, and then I will get a long run in this weekend.  This has to happen.  I lost almost 30 lbs between January 1st and May 1st, and now I’ve gained about 5 lbs back.  If I don’t get my act together, I will be back where I started.
