I switched my registration from a half marathon to a 5K.
And I am a-OK with that.
I've had a hard time going for runs. Life has gotten in the way and being tired hasn't helped. Getting up in the morning is just not appealing to me so I have to run at night. Hubs went to a concert last night so running wasn't an option. I did squats and push-ups while I watched t.v. instead. Not the best plan, but better than nothing.
And not going for a run made me realize that I really, really don't want to run 13.1 miles in three weeks.
I don't want to say I am burnt out with running. I'm not. I love running, at least I love running after the first mile. But, I'm kinda tired of training. I think I might join a gym with a pool so I can run or bike or swim or do the elliptical if I want. We'll see what the budget has to say about that. I just want to be able to run when I want to instead of run when I HAVE to.
A little part of me feels like a quitter. But a bigger part of me realizes, damn girl, you've already run TWO half marathons this year and five 5K's, cut yourself some slack.
Cutting slack, here goes.
My Get Your Sh!t Together September '14 Goals are going well. Sure, I'm only into Day 2 here but whatever, I feel good about it. Mini goals are the key. Mini goals. Mini goals. If I say it often enough I will believe it!
|#GYSTS14. My water cup that I have marked up to make sure I drink my water during the day. I get a check mark for each full cup I drink. Goal is five of these a day. Day 1 was a success!|
