Back in action

Wow, so I hadn’t planned to take off this much time from blogging. I went on vacation and ended up getting slammed in both my professional and personal lives…
It’s been a struggle to get back into the swing of things. It’s so easy to break up the everydaying of life with something exciting, but I find that it’s more difficult to transition back to the same ol’, same ol’ afterwards. Isn’t that strange? I thought that humans were creatures of habit. I like consistency and planning things out. I thrive on knowing my next step in whatever it is that I’m doing. I just can’t seem to get myself back on schedule.
Anyway, the good news is that fall is here and the temperatures have dropped along with the humidity, leaving me free to run outside again. I’m looking forward to the races I have in the coming weeks. I ran outside a few days last week and felt great, so I am hoping the races will go well too. I’ve got a 10k at the end of this month so I’m trying to build my stamina right now—longer runs with a consistent pace. I’m not worrying about speed right now. My first goal, as always, is to finish the race. Other goals come to mind on race day, usually: don’t finish last, finish before some other person I’m pacing myself with… things like that.
My asthma is a little more under control, even though I still struggle with some breathlessness. I’m planning to meet with an allergist, though, to see if there are any triggers I should look out for. Evidently ragweed is really bad right now. I did not know that…
