It’s been a while since my last post. Life has definitely gotten the best of me recently. I am both physically and mentally exhausted. Why? Here goes.
First, we have been trying to sell our house for over a year. Not trying hard, but it was listed and not really getting much attention. Recently, we switched agents and within a week we had multiple offers, one of which we accepted. So my house is sold and I have until November 15th to get out. No big deal, except for the fact that I now have to find a place I can rent with my 2 big, aggressive dogs. Not as easy as it sounds.
Second, September starts the busy season at the restaurant. As of writing this post, I have worked 12 straight days with my next day off being sometime in the distant future. This is not helping with my recovery at all. Running longer distances and spending 10 hours a night on my feet is killing me. My feet hurt, knees hurt, ankles hurt…basically if it exists, it hurts.
Between the fatigue and stress, I have actually started to doubt my ability to complete this half marathon next month. How can I possibly expect to continue at this pace? I don’t have an answer for that yet. But there is absolutely no doubt, I am too stubborn to quit. I will finish, come hell or high water. Even if it kills me.
Anyway, sorry for my ranting. Just needed to vent a little to keep myself sane.
Until next time, have a great day.
