It has been a busy week of work and chasing things. When I say chasing things let me explain a bit. 1) Chasing my teenage daughter to check in when she goes and has a double sleepover at a friends, so that I know she is alive and well. 2) Chasing Darcy to take his pills on time (which sometimes includes a call upstairs from work to get my mother-in-laws boyfriend to come downstairs and wake him up to take his pills, make the Dr. appointments. 3) Come home and chase dinner or well at least cook it.
Although, I did get my run in on Thursday morning at work on the treadmill. It was great and I felt awesome. I ended up doing 1:1's for half an hour with a total mileage of 2.92k. I know for some people that's not very much but the farther I go the happier I am with my run. So far, so good to considering I haven't have any shin pain for weeks now.
So at this point I can completely say that I feel ready to bump it up to 2 min running and 1 min walking this Sunday. Lately, when I am running I feel good and energized for the rest of the day. It also helps me out when I am feeling frustrated with what is going on with Darcy or life in general.
Does running help you mentally deal with problems?
