Well I knew this was going to roll around sooner than later. I had a beyond lengthy discussion with my run coach on Tuesday. He and I discussed so many different logistics, including my health to just about what I’ll eat daily or mostly on days of long training runs.
Most important for summer training; listen to my body. Listen to my asthma. Don’t be a hero.
I have the schedule. I have the days written in my agenda, it’s real now. I’m going to do this.
I’ll be posting more as weeks go on, more so to keep myself accountable.
I thought a lot today while being crazy busy about the start of this journey. I realized my first 5k of this plan is (was) done on the longest day of the year, but mostly today is a new season. It seems fitting.
Last year I set a goal to do a half marathon. I accomplished that in October. Since the start of 2017 I’ve ran 4 half marathons and 2 10ks. I could of worked on my half marathon time and kept getting better times but I figured I needed a tougher goal. I needed to prove to myself this back of the pack runner can do a full. I can do the challenge. I can win and beat my body and mind. I’ll be a marathoner.
So stay tuned for this journey it’s going to be epic, an adventure and mostly me probably grumbling but the finish will be worth it.
This is my journey. It’s #MeVsMe
