Disclaimer, this post is for me, just a way to sort my thoughts. Well this morning I was suppose to get up EARLY and go and hit my 15 miles before church. The alarm went off and I just went back to sleep. It has been a busy crazy weekend and we have had my niece the last two days since her mama had a baby on Friday! Yippee...another niece! (but 4 kiddo's all weekend) So between the fair,Cougar Football Saturday...and the looming amount of WORK I have to get done this week...I have had a hard time focusing on running.
Now I did get all my runs in this week including my 5 miles of speed work at an 8:30 pace. Yesterday I ran 8 and today I need to get in those 15! I am tempted to skip church and that bothers me a bit. I mean where are my priorities? I have all day to get my miles in...why do it during church. I know I just want to get it done, because every hour gives me more time to think of excuses why I won't run today. I think I am just hitting a wall...and need to get some pep back in my step. It just seems like the training has intensified and can be consuming. Frankly, the only thing that I want to consume me is God! I want to spend my time thinking of how I can share God's love with others and get into God's word. God is my center and when other things push him to the side...I get off balance. Balance is a good thing...happy mommy and wife! So this morning was a gut check. YES, YES I will get my 15 miles in today...and hopefully enjoy it! But until then I look forward to time with other believers and visiting my new baby niece!
