Better, but......

Saturday, August 03, 2013

I feel fine! I've ran almost 5 miles the last two runs. My times have been slower, but I've really been working on my pacing. There is NO way I can run as fast, if I want to do a 1/2 marathon. (Did I just say that?) emoticon

I think a lot of my "problems" is a little stress. My oldest is moving out on Tuesday. We will be moving her into her dorm and I'm NOT ready for it. She is the daughter with the ED and she has been having some anxiety about the changes, too. (She hates change, in her words.) emoticon

Besides her moving out, we are moving the second daughter into her room and taking our office space back. My husband is building a bedroom in the basement for the oldest son, so he'll be moving downstairs. So basically, my house is in disarray and I return to work on Wednesday!!! UHHHHHH! emoticon

So I think, once all this is accomplished and things settle down I can start doing a 1/2 marathon training schedule thanks to KPETSCH! I also hope to walk the Corporate Cup race with KALIGIRL and ONEKIDSMOM. It would give us a chance to get to know each other better!

I'll keep putting one foot in front of the other in all aspects of my life, right now. It's all I really can do! Thanks for all you do for me!

    I am with ya, sista! I am stressed about my oldest leaving for college in a couple weeks too. Not sure what to say to make you feel better, cause frankly, I feel the same. Since exercise relieves stress, we should do a lot of that!!!

    Wow, that is a lot going on in your life. Take deep breaths. It's good that you have your runs to release some of the stress. I am sure you and your daughter will adjust but it is a big step for both of you. Having the children leave the nest is all part of the circle of life, isn't it. Doesn't mean it's any easier.
Do take care of yourself.
Have a terrific day today.
