Hope everyone is having a great week so far. It’s a plus we are already halfway through the work week! Tuesday started off with a rude awakening at 4:20 AM.
Thankfully my workout went amazingly well. After a 1.5 mile warm up my legs kicked into high gear and I was able to do my workout with “ease.” 3 x 1600 meters at a 6:58 pace with 600 recovery. I took the recovery very slow and made sure to take both the warm up and cool down slow and easy. This really made a huge difference.
Today I wanted to come and talk about something that’s been on my mind a lot. I’ve been struggling with my time recently. Sure, it could always be worse and I will never complain because I have been blessed in so many ways. However, I need to make a few changes to better utilize my time.
As you all know, I now work full time, have my own business, am training for a marathon, blog 7 days a week and try to squeeze in time for family and friends. It’s been a struggle the past few weeks. I thought it was just because I was getting back into my schedule, but I can see it getting out of hand.
I’ve made the decision to change things up and take a slight step back. So, what does that mean exactly?
I won’t be blogging every single day of the week. I will be posting a minimum of 3 times per week with possibly more depending on how the week is going. It’s not that I don’t want to be able to continue posting every day, but I have other things that require my time and attention.
It took me a while to get to the point where I am OK with that. This blog isn’t just something I casually do, it is something that pulled me through some really dark times. It was there from the beginning when I needed an outlet. It in a lot of ways is a part of may, however crazy that may sound.
So, I ask that you bear with me a little while. I love being here, I love each and every one of you, and I look forward to continuing to document this journey. Sometimes we all have to adjust to be able to make the most of our lives. I think this will be a good adjustment. I do hope that one day I can get back to posting everyday, but for now this is what is needed.
Thanks so much for reading every day! I hope this will allow me to do a better job and interacting with each of you and focusing on what is important!
Have you ever had to take a step back?
How did your run go yesterday?
