Here we go
Posted July 28, 2012on:
As tomorrow will be officially 33 weeks until the Shamrock Half Marathon starts, so begins training season officially for me! Intense training! I’m not only preparing for my first half marathon, which I have a lot of work cut out for me, but I have (as of this morning) 66 lbs to lose until I reach my goal weight, my chosen time to reach this goal weight would be, you guessed it, the same time as my half marathon.
Am I putting a lot of pressure on myself? Maybe. I’ve set goals for myself before and failed. It’s disappointing. But I’ve set goals for myself that I should have achieved. Goals that were attainable, had I just put forth the effort and not given up so easily as I tend to do when I get bored or run into an issue. This is a true test. And I want to stick to it. I’m very determined to stick to it.
In the past week I have gotten up before 5 o clock in the morning twice to go running which I’ve never done before in my life. Those who know me should know that’s a sign that things are changing in me.
So, I’ll be getting up again early tomorrow to go running again…time to work it out!
