Joy: Running Again

Last week I ran 5 times and 1 morning I just was not in the mood, so I went for a 4 mile walk with my mom instead. I wasn’t particularly fast, but I had moments of finding my pace again. I have one week before Garry Bjorklund Half (aka Grandma’s Half) training starts.

Finding the time to add running into my schedule won’t be easy. But its doable. I’m hoping to utilize the gym at work, by running as soon as I’m done with work before I drive home. I think part of why my adjustment back to real life was tough this week was not getting the endorphins I was feeding my body every morning. As much as I would like to run in the morning, I’m not quite ready to get up and run at 5:30 am.

Does your workout routine change depending on the seasons?

With the warmer weather have you been outside more often?

(Or do you live in the area of Minnesota/Wisconsin that ended up getting a snow day on Friday?)

  1. I struggle so much with finding the time to run, I pretty much need to do it in the morning and I don’t have any option but outside, so I’m finding lots of challenges right now. My goal is to be able to run the entire 5k by the end of the year instead of walking part of it, so I have to step up my efforts somehow though!

  2. That is great that you have been running so much! My workouts definitely change with the season. My mileage really drops in the winter as I do not enjoy cold weather runs. I’m a total wimp! I did go for a short run last week since it was so beautiful! It felt so good to be outside. Makes me excited for spring/summer running! I’ve been focusing more on strength training and I purchased a 3-month barre membership so my goal is to get there 3 times a week.
