Today we want to wish ALL the 6AM Runners who are moms a HAPPY Mothers Day. Being a mom is a demanding and challenging role, and adding daily running to the mix can certainly make things more difficult. Think of all moms do on a daily basis. So when you alos take time to run, here are some reasons why things get tough/affected:
Time management: Running requires time and commitment, and finding time to fit it in can be a challenge when you're a busy mom. Balancing the demands of parenting with work, household chores, and other responsibilities can be challenging, and it can be tough to carve out time for a regular running routine.
Physical demands: Running is a physically demanding activity that requires a lot of energy and endurance. Being a mom can also be physically demanding, particularly when you have young children who need constant attention and care. It can be difficult to find the energy to go for a run after a long day of taking care of kids.
Mental load: As a mom, you are responsible for the well-being of your children, and this can be mentally exhausting. Adding a daily running routine to your already-full plate can add to the mental load, as you need to plan and prioritize your time effectively to fit it in.
Guilt: Many moms feel guilty about taking time for themselves when they have so many responsibilities and demands on their time. It can be tough to justify taking an hour out of your day to go for a run when there are so many other things that need to be done.
Physical changes: Pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding can all have significant impacts on a woman's body, and it can take time to recover and get back to pre-baby fitness levels. This can make running more challenging, particularly in the early postpartum period.
Despite these challenges, the good news, is many moms find that running provides a valuable outlet for stress relief, helps them feel more energized, and improves their overall physical and mental health.
With a bit of planning and commitment, it is possible to incorporate a daily running routine into your life as a mom. It may require some sacrifice and flexibility, but the benefits can be well worth it.
Today is YOUR day and for EVERY sacrifice you make daily we THANK YOU!
