Apparently, Running is a Lower Priority This Month


Running this month has NOT been going well at all. Between the crazy weather and this MBA application process, it just hasn’t been falling high in my priority totem pole.  As of last week, I have clocked 50 hours this year.  Realistically, it should be at 85 miles or so. It may not seem like a huge difference, but those 35 miles are not going to happen overnight.  That’s for sure.


I will NOT click that ‘”edit goal” button, I will not…

I realize that I need to make more of an effort to actually run 5 times a week (minimum).  And I want to be. I felt so much better in January than I have in February.  I felt more energetic, I felt thinner, and I felt like my sleep patterns (and, gross, but my bowel movements) were more regulated and predictable. I’ve been waking up a 230 in the morning almost every day and not being able to sleep for hours.  It’s so frustrating, but it doesn’t happen, when I run.

My roommate actually had a great idea for motivation.  She bought two bathing suits for the summer.  She said, she was hoping that would motivate her to work out and tone up.  I went ahead and did the same. I thought it was a great idea!  I bought two bathing suits on Amazon, on Saturday.



I’m not trying to make my body look like that – I enjoy food on the weekends a little bit too much.  But, HEY, the photos might serve as much motivation as the actual bathing suits! Winking smile
