Day 435: Running Again

First run of the year! Painful. Slow. Ugly. But done — 6.5k, a wheezing, shambling mess. Again, DONE.

I was just looking back over old data, and last September was the last time I was really ON TRACK — six months ago. I’m struggling to remember what happened in September and October of last year that threw me off so badly, but then I remembered: I HAVE THIS. I just need to dial the blog back to last September/October and check in!

A bad week last week, and a few setbacks, but I’m feeling good and confident and on track now. I’m adjusting to some schedule changes in my wife’s working life. More importantly, SHE’S adjusting to some schedule changes and being amazing about some demanding shift work that’s getting her up as early as 3:30 a.m. and sometimes coming to bed around 1 a.m. depending on when she’s on the clock.

All in all, things are looking as good as they have been in the last 435 days. Sobriety’s been great — barely even a whisper of the drinking nag — I feel good to be running again, and I feel like after a week of being a bit sloppy I’m actually anxious to eat right and get back on track.
