“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.”
Well it’s official…I have fallen off the running wagon. I thought maybe I could get at least one day of running in this past week but even Friday slipped past without a run. Excuses…I could come up with a lot but the truth of it was I just could not bring myself to run. I had less time due to grooming dogs and way less energy after wrestling with a number of soggy 130 pound dogs. Spring is “big” dog season…you know the kind…bath them once a year whether they need it or not kind of dogs. Or, as I view it…the ones that really don’t want a bath and struggle from start to finish. Monday is another full day of grooming but it is 4 small dogs…yahooo!
In my mind, deep down there, I know that running would have actually energized me with natural endorphins. But all I really wanted to do was flop down and not move. I am going to take this lapse and place it into the perspective of a much needed rest period and start back at it next Monday, Wednesday and Friday where I left off. I think I actually missed the benefits that running offers…those natural endorphins make a lot of difference to the little aches and pains of every day life.
Today’s “stone” is Day 126 new commitment in place, look forward, not back
