Ready to Run

I know I’m finally ready to run again. Yes I know I was cleared to start running awhile ago, but I was afraid. Since we never really knew what was wrong with my foot or how I did it I’ve been terrified that it’s not healed or that I’ll hurt it again. But now, for shrewdest the second time in 2015, I’m sitting at a race, not running. My friends are running a half marathon. I want to run a half marathon. Heck, I want to run a 5k.

This is on me. I need to get back to my run/walk build up. I’ve used illnesses as excuses. I’ve used spin class as an excuse. I’ve used fear. I need to get over all of it and just run because at this point I’m sick of listening to myself. I’ll never get back to running half marathons if I don’t run.

So my new mantra is get over yourself and run. No more excuses.

  1. I am RIGHT. THERE. with you. I think a lot of my lack of desire was fear to get back out there and start over. I’ve been trying to ease back into it with 3 small runs a week. It’s getting better. I’m getting more confident and really wanting to run again. My mind just had to get out of my body’s way. You can do it!

  2. I’m definitely going to borrow that mantra. I had been avoiding running because I was afraid it was hurt and didn’t want to deal with what that would do for me mentally.

  3. Suck it up, buttercup. That’s a good mantra, lol. I’m going to use it right now to get out the door and run in the snow/wind stuff we have going on outside. As soon as I put down this cookie, I swear šŸ˜‰
