I haven't ran for a week (beware: venting blog)

Sunday, September 22, 2013

I have been busy with the trees being cut up for firewood - lots of bending and lifting in order to stack the logs. So I did not want to over do it. I miss my run time, it's the time where it is just me and my thoughts. There is no one but me, myself and I to think about.

I am getting so tired of doing so much around here and then listen my DH complain about how tired he is. (oh, I should add here that he has chronic pain issues and if he moves in a certain way or lifts too much his muscles go into a spasm. So I do not expect him to do the things I am doing) But I am so tired of his negativity and constant talking about things I have no idea what he is talking about and don't really care to learn about. Sometimes I just want to scream, "Will you shut up! Can't you see I have no interest in what you are saying!"

It reminds me of the time we were driving somewhere and he was going on and on and on and on... We were 15 miles down the road when I realized I totally tuned him out and he did not have a clue that I was not listening to him. He just kept talking and talking and talking....

Now, he has a cold and I am listening to him moan and complain about how miserable he feels. If I did not have so much to do around the house, I'd do a long run up the Paul Bunyan Trail --- one way. hahahaha

Okay, I am laughing now, time to get to work.

To anyone reading this, thanks for listening to my rant.

    Understand completely. Nothing says you can't still go for a slightly shorter run just to be alone with your thoughts. Or just be alone with your thoughts in what you are doing, whether it's stacking the wood or whatever. Hope you are able to find some time.

    yea I ranted all week, my job is really hard, if im not exhausted running is my escape. one day I was so stressed out I couldnt finish my run. I was so disappointed. Man, what your doing with the logs is a really good workout. Your probably burning a lot of calories.

I finally got a run in this week

Friday, August 30, 2013

Seemed cooler this morning, so I went for a run. Did a back and forth to the lake and back. Leaves are starting to turn and the wind was coming off the lake. Running on a trail-like road is so refreshing compared to the tarred road.

I like running toward the lake because it is a gentle downward slope but some how it does not seem so gentle when I turn around and have to run uphill.

    Lovely pictures. What a beautiful place to exercise. Those uphill routes don't look too bad on the map, but when they are to be done.......

Have a great weekend.

You haven't seen the last of me...

"Feeling broken
Barely holding on
But there's just something so strong
Somewhere inside me
And I am down but I'll get up again
Don't count me out just yet
..."
www.metrolyrics.com/you-havent-seen-
the-last-of-me-lyrics-cher.html


I just love this song. I have it as my power song on my ipod nano and hit that center button whenever I feel like giving up on a run. The version I have is a club remix.

"...
There will be no fade out
This is not the end
I'm down now
But i'll be standing tall again
Times are hard but
I was built tough
I'm gonna show you all what I'm made of
..."

Every time I feel like quitting on my runs, this song is what keeps me pushin' "Times are hard but I was built tough.." I am going to show ME what I am made of.

I managed to meet my goal of 15 miles this week despite being super busy and the weather being hot and humid. So far this year I have logged 451.8 miles. My goal of 600 seems attainable.

How about you? Do you have a power song that gets you through those tough moments of a workout?

    Good job.... it is nice to have something motivational to listen to.

I don't use music when I run. If I ever start training for a marathon, I'll have to download a long, long, long audio book!
