I managed a quick run (ok, jog) tonight and it felt great! I had to stop after 2 miles because my lungs were burning and my sides were cramping, but I’m happy I found the energy to do it despite being terribly sleep deprived.

I looked at my workouts this year and realized that I only ran a total of 5 times since the beginning of July. I’m really hoping I can go back to weekly runs to build my stamina and pace back up. I remember when I ran regularly, I had so much more energy and I slept much better. I’ve gotten used to 4-5 crappy hours per night, but I really miss conking out and sleeping so deeply, that I actually wake up refreshed.

Life has gotten way too complicated this summer and I’m craving peace, balance, and routine. My energy levels seem a little better this week, so I’m going to push myself to be more active again.

Lifting makes me feel pretty badass and running makes me feel free. I realize I need both to feel my best. 💖🧜🏻‍♀️

I hope everyone is feeling well and finding time to take care of yourselves. Good night, FS.

Aw, Mermee, you love running! I've barely run more than you this summer - one run a week. So happy you got to do those two miles and that both running and lifting will help you find the peace you need.

Excellent. Feel you on the running. Makes a huge difference in my mental state. Plus what's the point in looking like a stud and having a stroke playing mah jong? You're going to find your pace again soon enough. Have a terrific weekend.

Running can become addictive and it’s so healthy. Keep at it, watch out for weirdos! Look ugly when you go out, you’re too cute!(I watch a lot on the ID channel, they come out of the woodwork, per MamaShrew!) My son runs almost everyday and he is so healthy and can he eats what he wants.😠 Have a Spectacular Labor Day Weekend!💕🏃‍♀️

Great job Mermee! I hadn't exercised all week, but finally did yesterday. It really is great for the soul. You're investing in your health both physically and mentally! Hope every day you are feeling a little better. Hugs.
