Bee gave us a great prompt for today. She said to post a picture showing something you love to do. I couldn’t stop thinking about my poor, lonely running shoes, sitting under the chair where I threw them the last time I went running.
I miss them. I miss running.
I am sad to say that I haven’t been for quite some time. In fact, looking at Runtastic (the app I use to track my mileage and time), the last time I went was January 11th. That is just plain sad!
I can’t decide if I like or hate the part of Runtastic that sends me a notification every Sunday that looks something like, “staying active is good for your health, let Runtastic help track your activities,” or “get out and run today”. It hasn’t ever said that last one, but I usually feel like a huge glutton every time I get one of those notifications now. It only does it when I don’t log any activity, or when I only log one. If I’ve run more than one day, it will tell me how awesome I am.
I miss those notifications, a lot!
So, this is the kick in the butt to myself to figure out my scheduling issues and actually get out and run. “Scheduling Issues” is just an excuse anyway! I don’t know why I haven’t been on the weekend, except that I’ve been too full of excuses that sound a lot like “I’m too depressed to exercise”, when in fact, exercise would actually help my depression; something I’ve proven to myself over and over again.
Sometimes it’s just getting past the negativity in my own head that is the hardest part, because I really do love running!
What about you? Do you have something you love to do but have let other things get in the way?
