I started the week with a bad cold that is now turning into an ear infection. Hate it. Hate it. Hate it. Can't run! Don't have the energy to run. Don't think I should be running until I feel better. Bummer! On the positive side, this should give my Achilles a good break so when I am back in 1-2 days I will be able to do a long run and get all my frustration all out! oh, did I mention my younger one also has an ear infection and is coughing so much that neither she (her?) nor myself or hubby can sleep during the night. Not a good week!
I am 41, mom of 2 (one is 20 years old and the other is just 26 months)... I have a busy life, crazy career and a New Year's resolution to go back to running regularly. My specific goals are: 1) to run 1000+ miles in 2010 and 2) to run several 10Ks this year... or even a 1/2 marathon... I started running when I was 30 and was quitting smoking... Actually, I started power walking at first (that was the only way to deal with the cravings) and then shortly after I was so in shape that I started running... after about a year of running I got bad knee injuries and stopped ... now I want to go back thanks to the inspiration I got from my friend Anne (see my first blog for her incredible story ).
