My Running Has Taken A Severe Beating

This has been my running in the 6 months….a downward slope.

Am trying to be more focussed and pay more attention to my running but these are the hinderances that I face :

> My wife. She hates my running. Does not get it at all. Especially if I have to do a long run. Anyway, the situation has been improving. She is on a drive to reduce weight so we do not argue that much before my runs.

> Work. Seriously. Don’t know what changed in the last 6 months or so. Workload has increased like crazy! Sometimes am spending nights working.

> Cold weather. I don’t mind running in the cold but when I want to got for an hour I just tell myself…awww shucks, who is going to get dressed and then warm up and then run in the cold. Might as well spend time on the treadmill. And then I see some thing that I need to do around the house and before you know it…’s too late to run.

My new year resolution? Nothing stands in my way of running. Nothing.

Let’s see how long that resolution lasts :)

    I know the feeling ..face exactly all of the same challenges..except wife is happy to see me go out for running so she can have her peace to so her chores or better yet go for shopping. Cold weather doe snot help at all and I love to run outside…don’t like to do treadmill at the I end up doing maybe only once or twice a week, but I do go for a walk with my office colleague almost on all working days for about 2 1/4 miles.
