I feel really good about how I've been doing on this "round" of building a running base. I have the written plan in a place that I look at everyday (the fridge) and I have been good about following it. With that said there are always hurdles and my biggest one is motivation. It's not that I lack the motivation to become a runner just the motivation to get there. If I miss my morning or lunchtime workout it's pretty much guaranteed that I will not do it after work. If something last minute comes up I am all too willing to give up my run for the day (instead of finding a way to do both). I know that I am building back up a habit that I lost a long time ago and that can be a tough thing to do. I just hope that I am able to continue on track and find ways to get past my mental blocks.
This morning I did my usual 2min walk/2min run. It was actually scheduled for yesterday but I didn't get done in the morning so.....(see above :)). I am just glad that I got it in today and running/walking two days in a row shouldn't be a problem. I'm not keeping track of miles right now but did get in a little over 2 today- really slow but no painful shins or side stitches so think I'm on the right track :).
