So I just had one of my fellow Sparkies post a really good blog. Her friend told her she could do something she didn't quite believe that she could, and yet when she tried, SHE DID IT!!
I do not have the exact experience as her but I too have lacked serious training. My races have been my training and they are all about 3-4 weeks apart..talk about poor planning.
15K in March
HM in April
HM in May (where I PR'd by 0:1:59 and if it hadn't been for all that calf cramping WHO KNOWS!)
HM in June - Tomorrow 6/16/2013
Yeah that is a long gap in "training runs" but those are the cards I have and I am playing them. Then I will have an August 7K, and two Sept 5K obstacle courses, Warrior Dash and a Kiss Me Dirty.
However I have not lost a pound and have only gained since late February. Have I really been trying...? (No) I have allowed all of my daily schedules and obligations to allow myself to drown my stress with fast food in my face. Not the best choice I know BUT I have also not allowed it to stop me from doing the "fun" things I have planned for myself.
(Yeah I thought I was looking cute, until I saw this photo) I have this head vision of myself and how I look and then a window reflection or a PHOTO reminds me I am no where near to goal, but I keep tredging.
I have some big plans scheduled for myself...not sharing them all BUT I have already signed up for a HM for next June, will sign up for the 15K in March again and the HM in April again, will do another HM next October....and for now I love that plan!
