Motivation Monday

I was so getting my groove on this week with running.  I knocked off 24 miles this week, with my big run yesterday of 8 miles.  Well today I feel like an old man that just fell down a flight of stairs, I'm creaking and aching and stiff and sore.  I thought I was done with that. 

So I'm taking tonight off, maybe just a stroll with the kids in the stroller and the dogs.  I am getting closer to the goal of running an half marathon and it is doing crazy crap to me, like it made me crave a salad today rather than fast food, it made me look up other workouts to do or perhaps yoga to help with my soreness.

I'm still not sure that I have become this running mom, and as much as I can't tolerate skinny bitches, I am starting to like the running mom and the new physique that I'm getting.  I will never be a bedazzled skinny bitch, but I am fit, and I'm in shape.  Yesterday we took the boys for a little hike, and I had to carry the 40 lb 2 year old back up the hill, and I wasn't dying for oxygen at the end, a little winded but it didn't kill me.  That there is HUGE.  

So if you're struggling and hating it the working out and fitness, just do something today for 20 minutes.  Something, anything, wrestle with your kids, walk your dog, mop, vacuum, or try and walk around the block.  Get your sweat on it will do more than you can imagine or understand.
