Day 2581 – When To Quit Or Pause Your Goals

When I got home from our road trip, I was fed up with my health. I was eating like crap and not working out. So I decided to do a 5K training program through Runkeeper. It has been a fantastic plan so far! I love that I don’t have to keep track, the app does it for me AND gives me indicators while I run. Two days ago, I was on a run and thought I felt shin splints. I almost immediately stopped running. I walked most of the rest of the workout. I went again today, thinking maybe the other day was a fluke. I had been doing a lot of squatting and moving around the day before the last run, so I thought maybe that was part of it. Sadly, it wasn’t. I felt a little bit of pain today and had to make a decision. Stop the plan. I’m really bummed out by this because I was about a third of the way through. I had a 5K all picked out too. But, I’m a big believer in listening to your body and slowing down if you need to. So, I’ll take a week or two off and try again. Hopefully it was more about me working out that much after not working out for about a month.

Have you had to let a big goal go recently? How did you deal with it? lol, because I just want to curl up in a ball and go to sleep. 🙂

About 365 days of marriage

I started this blog in April of 2011. At the time, Bret and I were wedding photographers and it was a way to share how marriage is more about the day to day and so much more than the wedding day itself. For about 5 years, I blogged about the joys and sorrows of the Christian walk, marriage, work, family and friends. I’ve blogged every day since a few weeks after I started. In May of 2015, we photographed our last wedding. Now, I have become passionate about simplicity, particularly in marriage, Christianity, business, travel and life. For a number of reasons, we have become minimalists. I’ve found that having simplicity makes life so much deeper, refreshing and joyful. I hope that this blog will help others see the benefits of living simply.
