Wrapping Up The First Month With A Belated Blog

So sorry to be so tardy. Sigh. 
I wrapped up my first month of running and made my goal for the week. 
THIS week, I've been a total LOSER. However, let's start with the good news. 
My husband finally came home from his trip and, boy, were we glad to see him! We miss him when he's gone. :) He kept our little guy for me while I went on a couple of longer runs. 
On Saturday I did a long run with my friend Angie. We went for a slow and easy run. The running I did with her plus my run home came to 7.5 miles. It began as quite the debacle. My watch that I thought was fully charged was totally dead. My music wouldn't load and I was running almost 15 minutes late by the time I finally met Angie at our rendezvous point. What started out as rough and frustrating ended up being a pretty enjoyable run though. 
On Sunday, I ran 4.15 in 40:11.19
Mile 1: 9:41
Mile 2: 10:03
Mile 3: 9:43
Mile 4: 9:25

Total for the week: 24 miles!

I would be way more excited and whooping it up if I had blogged about this in a timely manner. However, it is late Thursday night of the NEXT week and I have run once. Yes, that's right, one time. :(
I am so frustrated with myself. This is truth for ya, people. Sigh. I was doing so great and all of a sudden, I've stalled. I could give you a list of all the reasons I haven't made it out the door in tennis shoes, but who am I kidding? There will always be reasons, right?

I've gotta get back on the horse. I'm going to limp through the rest of this week and get a few more runs under my belt and then try to start again strong the next one. 


  1. I want the reasons! Maybe I can borrow some of them.
    You'll do better! It's ok.

  2. you can do it! you're doing so great - keep it up!

  3. Don't be so hard on're doing awesome! Keep up the good work, you'll get a run in eventually. :)
