Running Woman

“Believe you can and you’re halfway there.”

-Theodore Roosevelt-

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

  1. Grooming dogs has got to be aerobic; or at least strength-training. You needn’t fear that you don’t have the commitment. Your commitment to all of your passions is so obvious. Enjoy the rest, and back to the run on Monday. 😎
