I’m a sad, pathetic marathon runner.
That long run went from 13 miles to 6 miles. It’s a step back week, too! There are really no excuses.
My softball coach used to say that excuses are like butts: everyone’s got one and they all stink!
Remember how I used to tell you what my workout schedule was going to look like for the week? Yea, let’s try that again. Not that it was 100% effective. I’m a lazy girl at heart and I’m not going to do anything if I don’t want to. But when I share my goals with you, it gives me a little extra incentive to stick with it.
So here it is:
Sunday: 6 miles (done!)
Monday: 7 miles (to make up for this weekend)
Tuesday: Cross train
Wednesday: Speed workout (4 miles?)
Thursday: 6 miles
Saturday: 18 miles
Total mileage: 41 miles
That’s a lot of running!
My Wednesday and Thursday runs might be swopped: it all depends on Ashley’s schedule, but that’s the gist of my week.
People, whenever I tweet some whiny thing about not wanting to run and I just want to eat a bag of skittles and take a nap, DON’T LET ME! Get on my case, give me encouragement, yell in my face. I don’t care. Just don’t let me be lazy.
The marathon is just a little over 2 months away! Time is running out.
Oh, I took the perfect picture to end this post:
Does that make anyone else cringe?
How do you keep yourself motivated during training?
Are you a grammar nazi?
I am, but I know I make a lot of typos! I don’t have the patience to proofread all of my posts. Dave and my mom read it and tell me what to correct!
