It's okay if you don't run at the same time every day. In fact for a woman it's safer. I work at a warehouse doing heavy labor on bad knees with fibromyalgia so I know what it's like to run after work while hurting! You know your own body. Remember you don't have to be perfect about how many times you run a week. I understand the part about it getting dark earlier. I think sometimes men don't understand why we can't just trek out after dark in our reflective gear and head lamps. Safety is a big consideration. Send me a sparkmail if you want to chat. You can do this! Just don't worry about being perfect while getting in as many runs as you can a week. Sending hugs your way!

I'm with BECKYANNE. Time management can be challenging when you are trying to work out or in a structured program. You find a way to fit in the sessions.

I will tell you to focus on good fuel. Eat for fuel and energy. I found that I will eat unhealthy, I start dragging and even want to take naps! Look at your body as an engine and burn clean food. THAT can help significantly.

No matter what, try to stay in the positive, look at solutions to challenges, and focus on your goals.
Thanks for sharing and keep it up in the forums! We're here for you!

I'm not sure what kind of advice to give. It really doesn't matter how far you run. I would seriously just decide on how much time you have to run and just do it in that time. When you have more free time, go out and run more. Who knows, once you start going, you may find more time to run. Good Luck!

If I had all the free time and energy in the world this would be a cinch, I love running. However I am at the mercy of my job I have weird hours where I can't just choose a time of day to workout and stick with it, plus when I have opening hours I am so exhausted from being on my feet all day that it's so tough to make myself run, I did it yesterday but could only stand 2 miles plus it's getting darker earlier. I know I must just sound like I'm whining but I would just love some tips on how to balance this....especially if I end up getting a second job :( HELP! emoticon
