Let’s face it, life as a full-time working mom has it’s challenges
from time to time. or some of the time
or all of the time.
I love reading about dedicated, diligent running schedules and finding the time to get in crazy, amazing miles. But the reality is…
this isn’t my reality.
I ran about 4.5 miles on Monday evening. The sun set super fast so I had to dash my last one out in 6:45 to abate my “getting assaulted on the side of the road” (yes this happened locally about 2-3 years ago and still has me petrified) fear and left my hip/hammy with much to be desired after bolting downhill for a mile.
Add a crazy busy work week, including traveling cross-country and conversations like this happen:
Yes I was trying to find somewhere to stash my bags so I could run in the tunnel under Atlanta airport. Lucky for the person next to me on the 4+ hour flight home, I wasn’t able to find somewhere to do that.
To be honest, what is most frustrating is that the busier I am, the more I need a little “sanity run”. I’m in the middle of mapping out my upcoming races, but I do know I need more than 10 miles a week to make such things happen.
So I need your help – what’s your most creative way to squeeze in workouts?
