Life has been incredibly busy these past two weeks. School starts on the 16th and therefore my life has revolved around getting things ready for the school year. It is A LOT of work and is mentally and physically taxing (Trust me. I don’t finger paint and eat cookies all day). With all my time being sucked into into a kindergarten vortex, I haven’t had the luxury to get in the runs I would like to. Sure, I am running and spending time in the weight room at least 4 days a week. However, I know and I feel like these workouts aren’t quality workouts. I feel like I am just going through the motions and you know what?
I. Don’t. Like. That.
Running is a huge part of my life and it is incredibly important to me to keep it a priority and maintain the level of endurance I have worked so hard to achieve. At the same time, I wonder if I am being too hard on myself? This is only a short period of time. Eventually things will settle down and I can get back into the swing of things. Deep down I know this. I just don’t like stifling my passion, placing it on the low end of my list of priorities, even if it is just for a little while.
To keep things in perspective, I am reminding myself that I am one lucky girl to be healthy enough to run in the first place. I know some people would give anything just to be able to walk down the street. Why would I ever complain about only getting in a few three mile runs this week?
Life happens. It gets busy sometimes. Give yourself a break. Now, I just need to listen to my own advice!
Anyone else ever feel this way? What do you do to make yourself feel better?
