Wow this month kind of flew by for me despite the fact that I often did not know what day it was. We’ve come to last week of the month again. Time to bear at it all with our Runfessions. I have a lot to Runfess and Thanks to Marcia for hosting.
These last 2 weeks have been a struggle running wise. Honestly, it feels like a chore right now and i am having a hard time finding my mojo to get out there on my own. I always knew that the social part of running was a huge reason why I loved running. I am hoping that we are able to get out in small groups by the end of June. Since I have always cycled and strength trained on my own, that does not feel different. In fact, I am enjoying it much more than I ever have.
Although I 100% believe in the importance of rest days, I admit I have not taken one in weeks. Exercising everyday has been keeping me sane through all of this. My body feels tired from all the above strength training and cycling. I have been here before and I know how important it is to let my body have a rest day. I pledge to schedule some of those this weekend. Hold me to it!

We are entering phase 1 of reopening today and I am a little nervous about it. I am not sure how we go back to some sort of normalcy but I crave the normalcy. We are heading out to a restaurant tonight that is doing a tailgate type of thing. We are assigned a certain spot in the parking lot with a covered tent. Should be an interesting experience. I guess I will have to wear real clothes too! I am excited to get out the house and eat at a restaurant again (even if it is in a parking lot). Stay tuned for details about that. Not quite ready to hit the hair or nail salon although I sure need to.
