Yup, today was the day. It was lunchtime and I headed down to the gym. I actually had some anxiety about the whole thing. I kept looking around as if people would call me out for not being there for... The best part was that I had gym clothes in my locker. I got to wear my own clothes that I bought. You cannot imagine how good that feels, until you lose everything you own. I only wish I had kept better gym clothes here instead of at home. I stepped onto the dreadmill, because I am so out of shape, I am still a bit sore from the obstacle race on Sunday. The last thing I can handle now is an injury so I started with a fast walk and ran from there. I ran 3.1 in 31 minutes and I was tired. Yup, I am starting over. I cannot dwell on the fact that 8 weeks ago I ran 20 miles. It all starts now.
Since my head is still in a bit of a fog, I thought it best to get some help starting over. I am working with Jess of Fit Chick in the City on getting back to a good place. She and I are setting weekly goals that are attainable so I don’t get overwhelmed and fail terribly (my words not hers). This week’s goals should have been easy, but I am struggling with them. Who would have thought that I would have difficulty eating a green veggie at dinner and running 3 times this week. That said, I am definitely trying to succeed. Mary Wittenberg won’t be BFFs with me if I can’t even run three miles.
Any tips for starting over? Help!
