Back On Track!

I'm back in the swing of things ... back on track ... on a roll ... back into my routine ... and it sure does feel good!

Okay, I'm not quite there. Before my Feb virus, I had worked up to running 4 miles in one session. This past Saturday I only ran 2.5 miles. But I'll add a mile this coming Saturday, and should be able to get to 4.50 by the end of the month.

The worst thing about the road block wasn't losing miles or having to get back to where I was, it was the LOSS of concentration ability! Honestly, being able to gut it out and just stay on the darn treadmill has been the tough thing for me to regain! But I'm working on that too this week.

Happy Training to you all!
(And hang in there if you are under the weather. You'll get back on track soon, too!)

P.S. I haven't bought Girl Scout cookies yet, but I do have a box of Frango Mints (chocolates originally created by Marshall Field's in Chicago, now sold at Macy's in Michigan, yummmmmy.)

I agree. It's hard to get back into it. But I know you will.

Deb,

I am sure your can find your groove. Don't be discouraged by the mental challenges that come. That loss of concentration is something you will overcome and be stronger for it.

On the cookie front a co-worker of mine said he ate 5 boxes of cookies last Friday night. I don't feel so bad about my 2 boxes now. hehe.

Well I am glad to hear that you are back to 100% health wise because that's the important thing. You will get back to the swing of training in no time. Also, thanks again for those music tracks. Look forward to enjoying the rest of them.
