Think In The Moment

Happy Friday everyone!

It’s been a pretty good week of running here and I feel like it’s been a while since I could say that. I’ve managed 22k so far and hoping to get two more runs in (9k and 11 – 12k) in the next two days…we’ll see.

I’ve been digging. Digging to find wear running sits in my life. Digging because I know running something that I love to do but still have struggled to do so….to follow my training plan…to even put on my running clothing.

think about running


Nobody said training for a race would be easy.

Nobody said working, having children and life in general would be easy.

Someone did say to me last fall “slow down, live in the moment”, “lower {change} your expectations” and “you can’t do it all”. I listened to my friend when she said that to me last fall but have recently thought about it again.

So, I’ve slowed down my training, I’ve been living in the moment with my family and I’ve changed my expectations on what I can and can’t accomplish.

I emptied my dishwasher this morning but not the dish rack. And Yes, I have dirty dishes awaiting my arrival later today. My laundry is never caught up but I’m really hoping I have a least 1 sports bra clean so I can run in a clean bra tonight. I don’t know what we are having for dinner tonight and I’m okay with that, I still got a few hours to think that one out 😉

I saw this photo and thought it was just how I was feeling. Since I am getting ready to run another 10k race  (June 28th) I am thinking about what I need to do to just get to the event. It helps that I won another $25 gift card to the Running Room – frigging lucky, I know!

The journey to this race is completely different then to my last race at the Bluenose Marathon. And, I know it will be different when I soon start to train for my 2nd 1/2 Marathon {eeek!} but the good thing is that I know I will get there in the end. Rocky roads, bumps, turns and good luck all await us.

“Think in the moment”

Enjoy your weekend and your journey.

Do you think in the moment or in the future?

Anyone have two birthday parties in one day {for 4 year olds} ? 

Anyone racing, running, cycling????
