Slacker

For basically the whole month of July I've been a slacker of a runner. I ran only a few times and haven't been running at all in two or three weeks. At first I didn't notice much of a difference, but now I do. This isn't good. One reason for this lapse (that I believe legitmate anyway), is the fact that during the time it works for me to go running (around 5:30 because I have to leave for work earlier than I used to) it's dark outside. The sun comes up later, but I don't like starting out when it's dark out (not winter dark, but there's no distinct sunlight). Running in the dark is disconcerting for me. I should probably figure out another plan so I can get back on track, but it's hard! (Especially when I've become accustomed to the extra 45 minutes of sleep). I'll try and recommit next week and figure out a new plan for my exercise. I did so well for a couple of months. Blast.

Get back on schedule Charlotte don't be a slacker :)
Just kidding I've been terrible the past month my excuse was I needed to spend every night with Jessie but now they've been gone for over a week and I still haven't been to the gym.

I can't fault you for being a slacker runner because I'm still just so amazed at people turning into runners!

My excuse is the dark morning, and the heat, and having to get to work early, and I don't want to.

The dark morning definitely doesn't help being an early riser for working out! The reason I was able to do it for a while was having Jessie to be accountable to, but once we had to stop going together...needless to say, my gym attendance dropped dramatically.

Mark and I have had aspirations to do morning walks together, but needless to say...it has yet to happen.

Good luck!!

I haven't been to the gym in over a month and can totally tell the difference. I'm so bugged about having to start over that it makes me not want to start at all--how dumb is that?
