Pushing myself

I have been absent from the blog, mainly because in real life, I'm pushing myself.

I'm pushing myself every time I get on the treadmill at 5 a.m. And believe you me, when that DJ on my Podrunner podcast said yesterday morning that we'd be doing 20 minutes STRAIGHT of the running part, I just about got right back off and went right back to bed. But I didn't. I pushed myself. And I finished my fifth week of Couch to 5K.

I'm pushing myself with a personal project that a week ago was just an idea, and now is coming together at a really scary pace. It's pushing the limits of what I've known myself to be capable of, and it's terrifying.

I'm pushing myself in the morning, because our choir is performing one of the more challenging pieces of music I've ever done. I'm not even sure how my voice will react to singing it all at once with no breaks, but I'm willing to find out.

I'm sorry I haven't been here (or at your blogs) much in the last week, but I'm coming back - better than ever - because I just keep pushing myself.

I think you are awesome. I don't think I could drag my butt out of bed that early for anything - let alone exercise!

And you know, the more you run, the more air you will have for singing. My son noticed when he was running cross country he had more air for band.
