Love Is In Da Blog – Running (Or the lack of it)

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?

  1. I try to get myself walking at least a little every day but I just can’t get around it. Same thing like yours as I know pretty well that it makes me feel much better. Today I made a start and went to the beach with the husband. Let’s see how that works….. 🙂

  2. I love to walk, but it is hard with this nasty weather to get out there. We have the walking machine down stairs, but it is not the same. Good luck on getting your goals back to run. You have determination and you will do it. Love you dear girl!!

  3. My running shoes are lonely too, and I miss running. I have managed to walk about three nights a week, but its just around the block. I’m hoping to be able to start running before my birthday, but I am making no commitments. Sure wish I could though. Love those shoes.

    • You shouldn’t rush anything or commit to anything. You have a reason, I don’t. Not really anyway. You’ll get back to it and we can do it together again, but there’s no rush! Love you, Sissy! ❤️
