Walk in the Park

Last night was our 30 minute run with a distance of 3 miles.  Of course not all of us run a 10-minute mile so I knew that I would be doing quite a bit of walking at the end of the 30 minutes to get back to the car.  What I didn’t realize is that I’d be doing a lot of walking BEFORE the 30 minutes were up.  I just didn’t have it in me to run very much last night.  The weather was perfect for running, I’d eaten a light supper, had all the water I needed during the day, and even had a banana just to help ward off muscle cramps.  Basically I had done everything I needed to do to physically prepare for the run.  The only thing I can think of is that whatever little bit of energy reserves I had were depleted by my little sweetheart who’s getting a 9-month jump on her Terrible Two’s.  She’s on her 8th day of a 10-day course of antibiotics and just isn’t quite herself.  Normally she plays independently very well but lately she’s been clingy to Mommy.  And that’s ok.  I love when she runs over to hug me and give me a kiss just because she wants to.  Maybe she’ll take it easy on me today and let me have a recovery day before tomorrow’s run.  I doubt that will happen but a girl can dream, right?


About No More Sidelines

I am a stay-at-home mom to an adorable little girl and the wife of my soulmate. This is the life I've always dreamed of living, even though I got a much later start than I had planned. But that's ok. God knew there were lots of things I needed to experience in life before He gave me the two greatest blessings I've ever known. My heart's desire now is to become physically fit so that I can enjoy the wonderful life I have to the absolute fullest. Life is too precious and fragile to just sit by and watch. I want to participate. No more living on the sidelines for me!
