After acknowledging the extra "poundage" that I slapped on myself over the holidays and vacationing, I vowed to get back to it full steam. Ready to pay the piper. I must admit here, I haven't been giving it my all. I have stuck with the evening strength training, and I've had a few runs here and there that were nothing to talk about...I figure if I fess up now, I can get to it like I should be doing.
So here we go...I've not only committed myself to the half marathon in June, but I've also chosen to run my first 10k in March along with my daughter. Do I want to be able to finish it? Why yes, I do...so time to get strict on the training, lose the excuses and man up to what I need to do to get this accomplished.
A constant that I find in life is that to succeed at the goals I'm setting for myself, I have to compromise with myself on what is needed to be given up to get to where I want. It's all about the change for me right now. I'm loving the many changes I'm going through and I'm learning to enjoy them. The mental change is challenging though. It is so much easier to do and think the same ole way...but that way got me to where I am today, and I'm ready to push it farther and accomplish more goals.
So bring on the weekend with the rain that I will get to run in :) and along with it the clarity that my runs always bring to me if I'm willing to listen to it.
