Well, my hidden motive in signing up for Juneathon is already proving to come in handy. As with Day 1, I didn’t have much motivation for getting in physical activity, much less a run. I’m slowly adapting to Central Standard Time again (although my eating/hunger is way off and it’s driving me nuts) but that’s not what proved to be my hurdle.
Today I left South Dakota to help the middle sister move in Nebraska. After a few hours of lifting, hauling and moving her life into her new place (which didn’t have internet access for me to post this until Friday), all my body wanted was a bed. Instead we opted for a post-move meal at Old Chicago, further adding to our (okay, mostly my) disinterest in running.
My desire to complete Juneathon, aided by my sister, was what got me on the bike trail for a jog for Day 2. It was just a 1-mile jaunt, but I figure once I get settled back into my own apartment and get caught up on sleep, I can focus on logging more miles over the weekend. Then begins a five days of traveling for my first week at work. That hidden motive is definitely going to pay off next week…
The start to Juneathon may be rough, but I fully intend on sticking with it and aim to finish strong. In addition to being a Type A optimist, I’m also an over-achiever. You can bet I won’t be settling for low numbers once I’m back in the swing of things.
