Day 29. National Blog Posting Month.
As this month draws to a close, I have wondered what my postings will be like in December. Can I continue the daily posts? Will I take a break from the blogosphere or will I soldier on?
The decision was taken out of my hands. I’ve had my first request to write about specific topics and I plan to tackle those in December. A friend from medical school messaged me the other day asking that I write about sleep training, having more than one child, and balancing work/home life. I am certainly no expert in any of these topics, but I can draw from personal experience and together with a bit of research, I think I can offer my readers some food for thought. These are all great topics and I thank her for suggesting them. You know who you are!
So, today I got to sleep in for about an hour and what a blissful hour that was! I spent the morning at the local electronics store with my best boys to pick up some new cordless phones. It was a beautiful, crisp sunny morning. For the first time in a week I didn’t feel completely exhausted.
We got back around noon and I decided it was a great afternoon for a run. I suited up, had my route planned out in my head and went for it. Twenty-seven odd minutes later, I was home again, having run my furthest distance yet, a whopping 3.4 kilometers. I ran intervals of 3:1 (run/walk minutes) but the last five minutes I have it everything I had an ran it straight home. I was so proud of myself! Despite the cold air and my burning lungs, I was able to run again for five minutes. That felt great!!! It’s a sign that my physical endurance is returning and it’s happening much faster than I thought it would.
Yet, despite the great feeling I had during and just after my run, suddenly a profound fatigue has fallen upon me and I desperately feel like I need a nap.
Baby steps, right?
