Day 214: The Day After Training

Sunday, January 20, 2013

This week was a rough training week for me.

You see, I spent a lot of hours in the office and had NO desire to go out and run when I knew it'd just make my day longer. UGH I hate that mindset!

I was slated to do 12-18 miles total last week - and I did a paltry 7. Let that sink in. 7. That's not even HALF.


Yesterday I did my 5 miles in just over an hour. I felt pretty good; but, as I sit here and think about what I was supposed to have done it feels so.. minuscule.

This week I have to hit it and hit it hard. The scary-long runs of 7+ miles don't start until March; but, now is the time that I'm supposed to be building up my mileage! If I don't set good foundation now, well, I know it'll be a ROUGH training session in March.

Tomorrow I have 5 miles slated; and it's supposed to be frigid. I hear of these things called 'treadmills'; but, I have no interest in them

I gotta rock it.

Also - consumed a ridiculous amount of Skinny Cow fudge bars today. Note to self: They are no longer welcome in the house.

    "but, as I sit here and think about what I was supposed to have done it feels so.. minuscule. " I feel this about my weight loss all the time :X

    1)What you are doing is better than nothing!

    2) In times like this, #1 feel like the lamest statement ever.

    So, get off your ass and get it done :P You set this schedule for yourself because it is something YOU want to do. If you don't get it done, you are dissappointing the worst possible critic in the world. Yourself! If this keeps happening, it may be time to re-evaluate your goals and decide what you can feasibly do. It's obvious you have an awesome desire to do this. You are at the point where you have to decide if you desire your downtime after work more, or the marathon more. It sucks! It's stressful! I know that once you fully commit to it, you'll rock it. You just need to give yourself that mental push!

    Man.. I haven't had any skinny cow in the house for months because when it's cold out, I forget to buy ice cream :( I'm safe around those. What I really can't handle in the house are the Skinny Cow peanut butter candy bar wafer things. I'll use up AAALLLL my snack calories eating nothing but those all day until the box is gone. Then I realize I've had a bajillion calories of "diet candy," and have no calories left for dinner. oops! lol

    And rock it you will!!! At least you keep going out for your runs. Keep moving because the summer months are only 5 months away and you will be rewarded for your commitment.
