This is how I am going to get through our first deployment –
I will run right through it. POW! Like a train! WHAM! Like a truck! :D Raaarrr!!!
I have decided that I am going to set a running goal while he is gone. All the times that I would be on the web cam I'm gonna run. When I'm feeling sorry for myself, I'm gonna run. If I'm bored, I'm gonna run.
This way, I'll have no time for self pitty, plus I'll get in great shape and sleep really well.
I have broken this out into a three part goal, basically: Pre/Durring/Post
Pre: Get in shape so running feels good again and i'll want to do it.
Durring: I will run everyday (That is realistic timewise).
Post: When he gets back [home] we can run together and I can keep up with him. (Because my 'running' is currently a painfully slow jog for him) :)
*I might add a distance goal to this. But I haven't decided yet. I think I'll wait until I see what kind of shape I get in so I can pick something that is realistic but challenging.*
So there you go. This is me, being proactive and determined to not spend the first deployment wallowing is the suckyness. I plan to run circles around it!
