Usually when I’m really into something, I tend to dive in deep. I read about it a lot, think about it a lot, and talk about it a lot. My husband jokingly (or maybe he was not joking) said I get obsessed.
When I first started running, I was “obssesed” with it. I had the master plan for my marathon training and tried to stick to it. If I didn’t do enough I criticized myself and many times I was stressed out. But I’m not saying I regretted those days. I learned a lot and enjoyed the whole experience overall. I don’t know why I stopped running for this long. It’s good to be back to the running days again. But this time my attitude toward running is a little bit different. I’m focused more on the joy of running itself and making it my lifelong lasting habit.
Making a good habit takes some time. Even though I didn’t have many ” I want to skip running today” days, but it still requires some will power. The good news is it’s getting better. Today we automatically went to the gym. Nowadays it’s not about going or not going. It’s about “what time we will go.” It was drizzling outside and our gym was little bit more crowded than usual. I increased the running speed a little bit and did 3.65 miles. My husband walked 2.85 miles. On the way back home, he said he was tempted to skip the gym today but glad he didn’t do that. I was proud of him. I love going to the gym with him.
The Jay Cuttler-less Bears are not doing good. I’d better find a different channel to watch.
