Here is my running log week July 11th. What a week it has been. Running had to take a backseat in my agenda last week.

Jim had a scooter accident and injured his left shoulder pretty bad. He had shoulder surgery this week and it’s safe to say that by no means has this been a walk in the park. He is recovering well now, but the pain was tremendous. Shoulder injuries in general are pretty painful. Jim had a really bad AC separation. Very Very painful, so say the least.

The heat and humidity is still pretty much a damper in terms of running. I have moved almost all my runs to late night runs this week. A) there really was no other time I could take an hour off during the day for myself and B) it is a bit cooler after 7:30 ish at night. At least slightly.

During my runs I’m still thinking about whether I will be signing up for the West Palm Beach Marathon in November or not. I still don’t know if I can put Marathon training on my plate right now. On the other hand long marathon training runs have something so rejuvenating and calming, and I feel I it actually is energizing. Maybe I should just sign up and take training easier without worrying about a time goal and just a marathon for the sake of running 26.2 Miles. What you guys think? I pretty much know that this coming week I need to decide whether I will be running it or not. If only there wasn’t so much humidity right now. Training in Florida for a Marathon in the Fall means I need to get up at 4am in order to hit the pavement for long runs by 5am. I get tired just thinking about it.

When I ran NYC and Disney back to back only 6 months ago this was my schedule for 5 months and now I don’t even know if I can repeat it.

(It’s just soooo much work!) πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

But then again we only grow by leaving our comfort zones and by taking on new challenges.

I’m pretty sure that by next Monday I will have made a decision.

Anyway. Here is how this weeks’ running went.

 

Monday: 5 miles around my neighborhood in early evening. Long, hot and sticky 5 Miler.

Wednesday: 6 miles night run. Jim’s surgery was scheduled for the next morning and I wanted to run late at night just to calm my nerves. Amazing the calmness and positivity you feel after a great run.

Thursday: no running. Jim had surgery in the morning. After I dropped him off I walked around the hospital for about 2 miles before heading home. I really just wanted to walk a little bit to calm my mind. It happened to be my birthday, too. The kids had a cake for me at night. Despite a rough day of surgery I still felt super blessed and happy for these 3 amazing people in my life. That’s the best feeling.

Friday: no running

 

Saturday: During the day I walked miles on end with my 5 year old around our community chasing Pokemons. If I wasn’t a runner I would say that I was pretty happy with my daily steps that morning, but late in the afternoon I felt the need to shake out a run. Saturday happened to an extremely hot and humid day here in Palm Beach, so I had to wait for the evening to go out running. It wasn’t even much easier later on that night. The humidity was still high at 8pm and I thought I might not make it past one mile. Mind over matter somehow won, and I pushed through 6 miles. It was a beautiful night with an almost Full Moon.

I felt so happy about accomplishing those 6 humid sweaty miles. πŸ™‚
