Lately, I have felt so down and disappointed with my fitness level. I used to have great, toned muscles. Now, I just feel soft. Like my muscles ran away. I want to run Bjorklund Half Marathon but have detrained so much that I can only do about 2 miles right now. I am afraid if I train that my time won't be as good as it could be and I will be looked down at. I work at the Y and people would know I would be running it. It's like they'd look at me like, "Oooh, you're that slow." Part of the reason I'd want to do is to meet and run with the sparkers. I don't want them to think I am "slow" neither. It will be great to meet Robert, Nicholas, John and Coach Nancy. I don't think they will care if I am slow but I will. I want to be best I can be. In addition to that, I could train with a running group but they meet at 5:30 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Saturday morning. I am not sure what my work schedule will be with the next position in my schedule. Would hate to sign up and than miss the majority of the runs. That'd be a waste of money. Also, I do best with runs in the morning. The pull for the running group is being accountable for the training to a group of people and having more people I know to run with during the race. The more people, the more merrier! Bjorklund Half Marathon entry is not a guarantee as it is a lottery.
