This week I am having a terrible time fitting these runs into my schedule. The kids are back in school. Business is picking in the Travel Agency land (YAY!), and my full time job is as it always has been - full time (duh).
If I could just get up an hour earlier and run, it would be so much easier. I just CAN'T. I have tried waking up early to exercise about a thousand times in my adult life. Do you know how many times I have woken up, changed my alarm to go off an hour later, and went back to bed? Probably 999. OK who am I kidding. Probably a thousand. Every. Single. Time. I can barely get myself out of bed to go to work. Run for an hour?!?! Seriously. Ain't nobody got time for that.
Alas, I have to get on it. And I have been. It just has not been easy. I will work my 8-11 hour day, and then come home and run before dinner. There just really is not any other options.
I am now running 5 minutes straight. I am honestly surprised I am this far. It is NOT easy. I feel as though my chest is going to explode. Just today I was researching how to breathe and I am breathing wrong! How crazy is that. The one thing I have been doing since birth and . . . I failed. HA! Turns out I need to breathe through the diaphragm and not the chest area. I will be trying this out tomorrow as I begin week 5!
This week, I also finished watching Grace and Frankie on Nexflix. Oh man am I going to miss those ladies. Take a look at this clip below. Beware: you will become HOOKED! Season 3 is forecasted to come out in May. Yikes!
My new Netflix find is Cuckoo. I am 2 episodes in. Not nearly as amazing as Grace and Frankie, but it is OK. Perhaps it will grow on me.
Anyone have any Netflix suggestions for my treadmill runs? Comment below! I need something extremely entertaining and funny. Nothing serious. I need to LAUGH when I feel as though I am about to die.
