Hola Hip Huggers!
I am reaching out to any hipsters that have gone abandoned ship in my social media absence. Ok, not really. I am really talking about running. Literally, it has been months since I let my wings out and I am pretty sure running is tired of my ‘ish and is getting ready to dump me…
Gah, I miss running so much, and want it back in my life! I just had a very rough start to the year, and never recovered. Running went from inconsistent, to random, to not at all. I even got a gym membership that I haven’t. even. used. to feel the void that running has always given me. Hoping to at least be staying in great shape until the slump passed…I’ve failed at that as well.
But yesterday, my racing buddy text me about a 5k in October. She is always a great source of inspiration because she is one of the reasons I ever started running. Neither of us have run in quite some time, so something small like this would be perfect. I told her I was in if she was…. So, I kind of think that has sparked some life back into running. It is still so hot here in Texas, so running outdoors for me is a no go. Last summer’s heat and 100 mile month of running just exhausted me. Can’t bring myself to do that, at least this year. But the treadmill? Am I ready for the road to nowhere? Just the thought of getting on that thing makes me hot, and not in a sexy way.
But, the time has come for me to get back active. Running is the easiest, yet the hardest and I’ve got to figure out a way to push passed this pseudo retirement phase and break out running!
Help! How can I get back running after a loooong break?
