Thank you for the encouragement. It wasn't as tough as I thought it would be (once the shin splints were better), but the length was not an issue. Length was always my hang up. Just plain old fear kept me from trying.
I have to admit, I haven't had a very stellar week since the 5k though. I have had some rough days of eating and haven't done anything exercise wise. That ends today. I have to do something. I honestly, don't know if I can get a workout in, but I can at least start tracking by entering all my food again. I don't want that race to be the end of my new beginning.
I hope you are doing well. I know you've had some challenges, but I know you can overcome them. I'm here for you! Keep going friend. :)
I just saw the message you left on my feed (don't know how I missed it.) You're so right. It is so hard to be a parent. I think one of the most difficult is having to sit by and watch them learn their own mistakes. No matter how I warn them (while trying not to sound like a freaked out mom) they want to do it their way, even when we see big red flags all over the place. :(
Thanks for the encouragement friend. 1462 days ago
