Part of me is really embarrassed by that, and I feel like I should have an explanation for it. Then there is part of me that really gets it.
I love to run, it's a fun and healthy hobby. It gives me both a mental and physical boost that I think I'll be going after for my whole life. But guess what....it's just my hobby. So I don't HAVE to run. I get to run when I feel that desire, or I can skip.
Lately I've chosen more and more often to just hang around at home with my husband and my dogs. We both work full-time, have obligations at the church, and have other interests, so I genuinely want to just hang out with Eric. I've also had some health related stress, nothing serious, just an issue that requires a lot of visits with my doctor and planning for the future. So, due to all that, I'm choosing at times to just not run.
Ok, now that all of that is said.....I really miss running consistently. I want to be back to it. I've been trying to run at least 3 days a week. Even if it's just a few miles.I know what I need to do. Pick a race. Sign-up for it. Find a training plan. And get going!!!
So now I need your help PLEASE!
Please COMMENT with either an idea for building up base miles or where to find a great training plan!
HELP! PLEASE GIVE ME ANY IDEA
