I had one of those emotionally exhausting weeks.
Work, personal life, self-confidence.. yeah, all of that was difficult.
So I started having a pity party for myself.
A pity party for one.
Get it over it Kathleen.
My recipe last night to get over the "BS" of my crazy week and to move on from the things that brought me down were.. a long walk with J and the pups, a treadmill walk while watching Real Housewives of Orange County, long prayer before bedtime and a great night of sleep.
It's Friday and this girl is feeling refreshed!
I knew I had to snap out of this funk I have been in because tomorrow I have my Dirty Girl 5k Mud Run and I have been pretty nervous for it. My last 5k I attempted to run several weeks ago was a major fail. Like such a big fail there is no way to find the good in the race (if you can even call it that).. I had mentally prepared for the run and thought I would be able to hold my own with a few stops along the way... I was excited, motivated and ready, but when the race officially started I had a panic attack. Minutes in I stopped, started crying, my breathing was off and I could barely walk the race. This is not normal people!!
The only bright side was that I finished the "race".. with a time that was way worse then my normal walking pace. Simply pathetic that day was for me.
I need to get myself in the zone for tomorrow and to convince myself that I CAN succeed. I need to BELIEVE in myself and have fun with this 5k. And when I do complete the run I WILL celebrate with a celebratory drink in the beer garden - morning drinking at its finest!
