No more excuses

Got a nice run in on Saturday and have another planned for tonight.  My running parter (stepdad) and I agreed that we have had a lot of excuses the last few weeks and we're over them.  We are planning evenings to run again.  If we ran through all last winter (while I was prego and very sick to boot) then surely we can get motivation for this season.  Plus we have a half marathon to get ready for in April and as I said before, I can't be slower than last year!  So tonight-- I am bundling up the little guy and heading out for a run!

And-- for additional accountability-- when I can't find the motivation to run, I am sticking in one of my Jillian Michaels dvds and gonna let her kick my butt instead.  : )  I would like to get my abs back to a pre-baby condition, and that isn't going to happen by doing nothing!


  1. Thanks for your comment!! I agree. I wasn't hoping for responses saying to give it up, but at the same time if I can't continue easily then I'm not going to go nuts over it. I just don't want to look back and regret not trying hard enough.

  2. Good for you! I'm trying to stop using excuses too - the new little guy is 2 mos old now and I think I'm healed enough to start running's just so much harder to start when the weather sucks!

  3. ND-- You are welcome! Sounds like BF has improved!

    Nikki-- Agreed about the weather!!
