Ok so my lack of marathon monday posts is mostly due to ADHD and forgetting that I am supposed to write about my marathon training on Mondays.
And partially because I have been REALLY TERRIBLE about training :/
I guess my question is how do you keep up the momentum? Obviously the race date is hurdling toward me at super warp speed and it freaks me out and I hope I am not shutting down mentally. I need to stop looking at the big picture and just break it down week by week.
Since I am so far behind and I have literally 8 weeks to go, I am jumping into a 10 week program and skipping the last two I guess :/ I don't love it but I need to do something. So this week I am doing:
Monday: 3 miles
Wednesday: 3 miles
Thursday: 3 miles
Saturday: 4 miles
I feel good about this week. I can do 3 miles just fine, I do it a lot. And I have done 4 so I know I can do that too. I just need to do it. I have a time scheduled during the day and I am just gonna DO it. I am not even thinking about the 13 that are coming, I am just going to focus on one week at a time. I have to lol.
The other part that is rough is I need new shoes :/ My target running shoes feel amazing on my arches, but have started blistering the crap out of my feet. At first it was the insides of my heels and now its the ball of my feet :/ I KNOW I need to get fitted, but I have to wait a little bit until I can afford fancy shoes lol Especially since I am going to Vegas in 2 weeks!
Also! I am hosting a Diet Bet! It starts on Thursday (so not lots of notice, sorry) but it will be over before the 4th of July! So who wants to join me to drop 4% by the 4th?? I am beyond excited to reach some goals and get back on track! Life has been a roller coaster lately and I just need some normalcy.
So join my Diet Bet here!
SO how are you getting back on track! Can you believe it's JUNE already?? Holy crap!
