Monday, May 06, 2013

And this blog is likely to be a short one. The past few weeks I've been trying to get back on track...but if I have to be 100% honest with myself I've been 'tracking' half-a$$edly.... really going through the motions.

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting different results.

I'm ready to stop being insane.

I'm not sure what I'm going to do to make sure this time is different...but I honestly feel like I'm waking up from a fog. I'm ready to rediscover the fire I first felt when I worked on losing..

I've got the Marine Corps historic half in less than 2 weeks. My training hasn't been the best it could be... but I know I can finish. My 'worst' half time was the one back in November when I was recovering from bronchitis (3 hrs 7 min)... so I figure that will be my worst case scenario.. in the 3 hr range. I'm going to TRY and do better..but having fun and seeing friends and of course the awesomeness that is the Marines... that will be that.

And I'm going to buckle down and get serious about training and watching my nutrition...so come Oct 27 I will go into Marine Corps Marathon knowing I've done the best I can to prepare for it.

    I'm with you. I've been half-a$$ing my food tracker, and I've lost all motivation. Hope we can find some motivation soon! It's time to be honest and do this!

    After you run your half marathon, you might want to take a look at the race prediction calculator on this page.

That will give you an idea of where you stand at the time you finish your half.

    You are still here - so you haven't failed.

You are still pushing, so you are still in the game.

You will find your path. I know you will.
