I’ve mentioned this before, but lately I have just felt like my mind is all over the place. With running, blogging, work, my personal life…I think I just have too many separate things going on and I find it hard to really feel like I’ve gotten anything accomplished in one area. This week I’ve been working on finding my focus. It hasn’t quite happened yet, but it’s a work in progress.
I’m trying to get better about writing down exactly what I want/need to get done each week. Also, planning out when I will focus on what. Monday through Wednesday are basically all about work (and sometimes Sunday night). Even with running and working out I feel like I need a plan or goal to actually feel accomplished. Luckily having these blog posts to write not only holds me accountable but also makes me realize that I did accomplish a good week of workouts!
Weekly Run Down
Tuesday: Strength Training
Wednesday: 4 mile treadmill run
Thursday: 3 miles
Friday: Strength Training + walk
Saturday: 8 miles
Sunday: 4 miles
I’ve been dealing with the cold a bit better than last week. On Wednesday morning the real feel was 16 degrees so I ran on the treadmill. On Thursday it was in the 20s so I got out for a run early since I didn’t know if a stroller run would be possible later on in the day. Saturday’s run in the 30s felt like a heat wave! Then Sunday came and I got to run later (8am) and it was in the 30s but the wind made it feel pretty chilly.
I’ve still been working on prehab which I think has contributed to my feelings of being all over the place. Sometimes when I decide I am going to work on that stuff I want to do everything, when in reality a little bit is better than nothing.
In other news, Grayson turned 11 months old last week! I am not ready for him to turn 1. This year has just gone so fast and I am trying to savor every moment.
Also, Rob and I went out just the two of us for the first time since he was born! My parents offered to watch Grayson so we could celebrate our anniversary (which was November 10th- 7 years!). We went to our favorite restaurant, Flemings, and had a drink at the Marriott Waterfront Hotel where our wedding reception was held. This has been an annual tradition for us so it was nice to be able to continue it this year.
Ok, now I’m going to finish up this post so I can go make multiple to-do lists that will probably just end up making me feel more overwhelmed!
Do you have a hard time finding your focus when you are working on a lot of different things?
Have you been running outside?
Do you have any annual traditions with your significant other?
