346 Days.

Today was hard. It was somber and there is not one spot I can look or be in, where I don’t see a memory of you.

The hours on the clock turned from one to the next.

We are trying to teach our children that life continues on as painful and unfair as it all seems. They have taken this very hard.

I was not going to work out today, but I find that when I put my headphones on and turn inward, it makes it easier on some levels. I have become quite good at burrowing so far deep into myself. It’s my safe place. I usually have so much to say, yet I seem to be speaking loudly and no words are flowing from my mouth.

I realize it may seem so crazy to be so devastated over an animal to some, but I am. We all are. It’s just the way it is.

20 minutes on the treadmill to warm up. Threw some hills in.

Leg extensions: 3×15 @30lbs
Walking lunges: 3×20 @ 10 lbs
Leg curls on swill ball : 3×20

Lying leg curls: 3×15 @30lbs
Db squats: 2×15 @15lbs

Treadmill: 15 minutes at 1:02 miles. 1 minute at 10 incline at 6mph followed by 2 minutes at 3.0mph flat. Wash, rinse, repeat for 15 minutes.

I may have to move the chair in front of the treadmill. Hemi used to sit there and wait for me to be done. So patiently.

About runningawaywithme

I'm a mom to 3 gorgeous children and married to a wonderful guy! I work in Critical Care and I classify myself on some levels as an adreneline junky. However, I am terrified of heights! Go figure! Im dedicated to running and physical fitness. There are no excuses good enough to not keep yourself healthy in body and in mind.

  1. I feel sorry for the people who don’t know the unconditional,true love of an animal. Your Hemi sounds like he was just a sweetheart. He certainly was “easy on the eyes.” So regal looking. When I read your post, I thought of him being with Chelsea too. Take good care and give yourself the time you need to get through this , “not around it.” (( ))
