And I have only managed about 11 miles this month. Am I fucken Nuts???? I can’t believe how much my running has suffered so far this year. to be quite honest, If I did not have the marathon to think about, running would probably be the last thing on my mind
I am doing the 18 week plan which means Sunday, february 24th, should be my week one. I am not where I wanted to be physically. all my new year plans are pretty much a bust. instead of giving up on my resolutions i’m gonna re-evaluate and get back on task after all the year isn’t done yet and there is still time for improvement.
My marathon is on the 29th of june and I cant wait. registration doesn’t open until the end of this mind and for psychological reasons, i need to register as soon as possible. I think once I pay my fee ( which by the way has doubled since the last time I checked), I will kick it into high gear. I need some type of reward system that will get me through my training. I have changed my screen saver to a picture of my training plan and some weeks look tough.
I think I will right down a list of all the things I have been wanting to get myself and will put down some money for every mile run. at the end of the week I can then treat myself to it. at least 90% of my rewards have to be fitness or running related. E.g if I complete the half marathon o=on week nine, i can get myself a new pair of running shoes and break them in in time for the marathon. Or i can get a new workout DVD or new set of weights. The remaining 10%, I will just spoil myself 🙂
