Just a quick post before I head out for a run.
I'm really trying hard to maintain my running mojo, since I've finished my half-marathon August 18th. I guess, overall, I've just been I'm trying to maintain my healthy mojo! My eating has begun to backslide, I'm not getting the sleep that I need, and I'm not pushing my self when I run. It has become to easy for me to walk a little bit when I'm running. Not that there is anything wrong with that but, I'm doing it for the wrong reasons. I'm not winded, I'm not gasping for breath, my legs are hurting; it's simply that little voice saying, "Go ahead and walk, no one has
So, even though a week of September has already gone by, I'm giving myself some goals for the month.
1) Find another run to do this fall. It doesn't have to be a half-marathon. Maybe a 5K and I can work on improving my speed and set a PR for the run.
2) Cut back on the sugar intake. The last couple of months, I know that my sugar intake has increased which is a contributing factor to my mood. Too much sugar is not good for me.
3) Increase my sleep time. I'm a person that needs at least 7 hours of sleep to feel good. I can manage on less but, if I listen to my body, it's not running at its optimal best. I need to walk away from the computer, TV, dishes, etc. and get back into reading a book for the last hour of my evening.
4) Get back in touch with my spiritual side. I've lost my way from God. He's there waiting for me. I just need to reach out to him more.
