Does everything really happen for a reason?!

So last week Monday was a beautiful late summer day, I didn't make it to the gym so I decided to go for a run after work. It was a good run, at a good pace, by the water at dusk, people were out, I'm feeling good, happy that I turned a negative (not making it to the gym) into a positive (out for an evening run). So here I am on cloud nine and... BOOM! actually it was really like this: trip BOOM!
That's right, for no good reason, being the klutz that I am, I tripped over nothing and fell on my face. Well on my hands and knees. And literraly less than a quarter mile from finishing my run. grrrrr... People rush over, I brush it off, keep on running. No biggie.

and voila:

ouchie

yeah so... what's the moral of the story here? Don't go for a run after a long workday? Walk, don't run? Don't be such a klutz?
Well I say no to all three counts and to the latter is just because man I can't help it! I am klutz... lol

Week #2 and 3 summary:
Ran twice each week. Gym zero. Work wins again. Doing what I can one week at a time. It will get better, it just has to :)

Weekly Update #1

Here's my progress so far:

Runs: 2 so far. The first miserable in the pounding heat, the other much more enjoyable under light rain. Plus when I run tomorrow that'll be 3 for the week. So on track.
Gym Workouts: 1. BUT! I will pointout that I went to a MORNING class so really that's like double the effort and should count as one and a half! lol
Positives: The quality of my last run was WAY better than any of my recent runs. I can actually call it a run as opposed to a lame jog.
Negatives: Told Phil I was definitely making it to clinch class on Tuesday but didn't make it at all. boo. Work so gets in the way man...

Summary: Off to a decent start :)

Blog? I have one of those? for real?!?

Hey y'all.
So this week is the week that I have said "enough is enough!". Enough hiding behind my work, enough ignoring what I have to do, what I know I must accomplish and feeling down about not actually doing it. Cause if I don't get to it right right now, surely I will die!
At least mentally and emotionally it would be the end of my half a** motivation. So it's kick it into full gear now or keep stalling indefinitely...
So enough I said! I'll live my life like I drive: full speed! :)

I am bizack. Ran three times this week. Even got a 5 mile jog in, for the first time in who remembers how long, this morning. Was it fun? Umm... not quite. Today was so hot it hardly feels like the first day of September and I'll blame the heat for the heaviness in my legs, in my arms and the cramp I got half way through in my abdomen. Felt good a little/not so little while after it was all over hehe
So here's the plan: Wake up earlier, get at least 3 runs in each week, be more productive at work so that I relieve myself of feeling guilty for going to the gym at the very least twice a week. Feasible? Very much so, yes yes!
Reading a book called "Getting Things Done" by David Allen which is helping with the organizational part of being more productive at work, i.e. the first step to freeing myself from unnecessary mental burdens.
If you dont' hear from me soon then I didn't yell "enough is enough!" loudly or convincingly enough lol
Talk to y'all soon! Promise, cause I mean it this time!!!! L.
