January in Review

Well this is certainly not the January in Review I envisioned after my first run of 2017! 
First run of 2017

January 2017
9.58--running miles
2.33--walking miles
11.91--total miles

Current 2017 stats
9.58--running miles
2.33--walking miles
11.91--total miles

After my January 1st run I was lacking motivation and kept choosing sleep over getting out there and running.  With some convincing from my neighbors I managed to get out there again on January 11th.

Two days later our family headed to Seven Springs for a long weekend getaway.  I had packed my workout gear and had every intention of running until......
my ankle had a run in with the steps moments after we checked into our hotel.  And that is how my plan to workout was stopped dead in its tracks. 

Of course we had a bit of a heat wave the weekend after I took my tumble and I sat in my house feeling like this when I saw all the runners pass by my front window.
I feel your pain kid!
Tomorrow will be three weeks since my tumble.  I ran for the first time this morning and I felt okay so I will take it. 

As I said at the beginning of this post, this is not how I saw January going but it is what it is and there's always next month!!

Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!
