It’s harder than you think

Getting back into the groove is always so much harder than I remember. After being sick for a week and giving my legs a much needed rest, now getting back into the swing of things those paces I was just starting to hit effortlessly are seemingly out of my reach. This past week I ran 20 miles, which seems to be a little bit closer to what I am comfortable running without feeling completely burned out. When I run anywhere from 20-30 miles, I feel a good balance and that I still have time to enjoy all the little things in life.

I did have a super cute running buddy for one of my runs though. George still is chompin’ at the bit to go faster than I can run… Any takers?


I got to enjoy two incredible sunrises on two different days this week while running though. It’s incredible what you can experience when you’re awake earlier before the rest of the world’s alarms are going off. Sometimes those runs are the hardest to get going on, but sometimes it’s so nice to enjoy the peace and quiet. The stillness is just so special and I  think so clearly when I’m out running.


This week I hope to bounce back a little bit more back into the routine and to get my paces back to where I was running before I left for Charlotte! I know it just takes a little bit of patience and time.

    I completely understand… between injury and back – to – back snow/ice storms, it’s been a real challenge getting back to pace and habit. BUT slow and steady. You’re right! Just a little patience! Glad you’re back at it!!!

    Hello there!

    I have to agree with you that getting back into the groove is really not that easy. Anyway, it is really so nice to know that you have a super cute running buddy for one of your runs and it is funny that his name is also GEORGE :)

    I’ve been in this situation so many times and not just in running or other exercise routines. I think it’s more on the mental side and you just gotta find the reason why you should get back on your routine regardless of how you feel.

    I have to show my appreciation to this writer for bailing me out of this particular issue. Just after exploring throughout the internet and meeting thoughts that were not helpful, I was thinking my life was done. Being alive without the solutions to the problems you’ve solved through your entire site is a serious case, and those which could have negatively affected my entire career if I had not noticed the blog. Your primary ability and kindness in controlling all the details was helpful. I don’t know what I would have done if I hadn’t come across such a point like this. I can also at this time look forward to my future. Thanks for your time very much for your reliable and result oriented guide. I will not think twice to endorse the website to anyone who needs to have tips about this subject.
