Time for the return of training recaps! Last week I started the intermediate half marathon training plan from Hal Higdon. I’m happy to report that it went pretty well.
I’m going to try something different with my blog since it’s supposed to be about my life, not just running. Focusing on just the running is nice and all but can get so monotonous. I don’t usually write about life here so I figured I’d start including a bit more about it so that people can get a sense of who I am. I’m pretty sure the only thing people get right now is that I’m a runner, I have 2 young children, and I have issues (oh, the issues, lol).
That time of the year is back again. It’s time to start training for my spring and fall races!
When I left the Navy back in August 2014, I wasn’t sure where I was going to go from there. Since my husband was also leaving the service and had more of an idea of what he wanted to do, I took a step back and told him I’d follow him where he ended up job-wise. Since I was seriously struggling with my depression and eating disorder, we both knew I needed to get some stability first then tackle the job scene later. With all this in mind, we agreed that I would stay home for the time being, take care of our daughter, and take time to research job opportunities while I established care with psychiatry out here in MD. I only meant to take a year off then jump back into a job. I even lined to apply for the police academy this past year. However, I had to put that application on hold when I found out I was pregnant with my son. Now we’re past the 1 year mark and I’m facing the job market again. What has pushed me towards entering the working world again so soon after my son’s birth? Education, really.
