Hi. I’m a slacker.
I was supposed to get up today and run. Ladder sprints – which I absolutely hate. But still, I was going to do them.
The alarm went off. I turned it off – and went back to sleep.
In some ways I think – hey, my body needs sleep. Things have been kinda insane at home, at work, in the car. But in others I think — DUDE suck it up!! You’re running a MARATHON in a MONTH (and 6 days).
Ummm…did you guys know that a marathon is 26.2 miles?? (People ask me all the time how many miles I’m running in it. Hopefully all of them??)
Why did I sign up for this again??
Oh wait, now I remember.
I guess the point of this post is to whine — why, after 17 weeks of training am I slacking??? (I guess it might be because I have the longest training plan in the world) I need to get my act together and RUN. I have 3 weeks until taper. I need to kick it up to level 10 and push myself these next 3 weeks.
No, I don’t plan on winning the marathon. Yes, I will just be happy to finish. But who am I kidding to say I don’t have goals? I’m not going to meet ANY of these goals at this rate!!
Running one race does NOT constitue a break. Sometimes I just need a reminder.
What helps you get your act together?? Advice welcome!
