Come Too Far
Saturday, October 05, 2013
Yesterday I was at 127.0 on the scale and had to talk to myself about not being disappointed. I'm hoping to go more than 6 days this time of weighing less than 127, but I accept that what I have direct control over is my eating. Weight fluctuates. This morning I was at 126.8, which isn't much different, but feels a whole lot better.
Enjoyed my speed work this morning, which included 10 half-mile repeats. I was disappointed, though, when I asked about the 4:40am workout on Monday morning with the two hour and 30 minute pace group leader for the Lakeland Half Marathon. The pace leader for the 2:37 group told me not to come. She thinks I need to slow down because I'm not totally healed. Oh, well. I'll enjoy my sleep. I just might make the 2:30 time on November 9th anyway. (Part of me wants to trash talk: that would show her!! But my better self just wants to run well.)
I'm not going to let minor disappointments get me down. I've come too far and accomplished too much.
