I haven’t run this week, and its stressing me out a bit. I’ve been away for work. I packed running gear with me, but there was no gym in my hotel. And to be honest working a booth at a trade show for 4 days, plus setting up and breaking down is hard, and tiring work.
My face is tired of smiling 😄, my back is tired of standing, and my feet are tired of … well me and all my weight on them, and of course they hate me for insisting on wearing high heels 👠.
I could have woken up early and gone for a run outside, but I just didn’t have it in me. Felt a strong pang of guilt as I checked-out today and saw a leaflet at our hotel reception with some safe and scenic running routes marked out on them 🤦🏼♀️. If I had seen this sooner, would I have made the effort?
Now I am on my way back home, and the guilt of being away for these 5 days, will weigh heavily. I will want to soak up every minute I can with my little munchkins and take as much pressure off my poor abandoned husband. And all the while, I’m still tried from this week, while I try to pick up the slack and erase the mum guilt that runs so deep.
When is too early to get a run in – as I dread the eye roll from my husband 🙄, the don’t go from my boys ❌, and my little feet screaming not yet your torturer 😬! We’ll see, I don’t know the answer yet.
