Now You Know & Knowing Is Half The Battle…

I’ve been sick for a few days and couching like a bad ass. This means I haven’t been running or lifting.
This means I feel like I am the laziest person alive. Okay, at least one of the top 10 laziest people alive. I have a friend that kept me company and that made couching a lot easier to handle.
I have no clue what numbers 1-8 are all about, as I just stole this, but number 9 seems to sum up my thoughts.

Even when my effort is sub par, I need to remember that I’m trying and that’s half the battle (G.I. Joe!).
I am bomb at getting to the gym and getting in my runs. I am not as amazing at eating within my macros.
When I plan my food out the night before and when I meal prep for the week, I have SO much success with eating. I’ll tell you that all of these delicious Oreo flavors are really making this rough. Remembering that even small steps are steps in the right direction.

Dave’s Fall Marathon In Training begins next Monday and I was entering all of the training sessions into my planner and I always forget how much training a half marathon/marathon takes. It’s almost like it’s brand new every season.
Long runs are on Saturday’s at 8:00 a.m., which means I have to adult like a boss and go to bed at a respectable time on Friday’s. I have two more long races in the books for the year: Boy Scout Half Marathon and Churchill’s Half Marathon. I am just praying that my knee and heart stay happy for them.

Do you train with Dave’s or with a training group in your city?

Monday’s Motivation

I woke up feeling sicky today, so I’m trying to get a few things done at work before I head to the doctor for some meds. I’ve had a headache the past few days and thought it was a simple headache. I woke up today with a sinus infection and now I know that the headache was my body cooking up something to make me sicky. I’ll be missing a dinner out with my running family tonight and I know I’ll have to take the day off of work tomorrow to sleep off some of this discomfort.

Sun Time-Fun Time-Brown Spot Time

Isn’t it amazing how quickly summer flies by? I am by no means a fan of any kind of heat, but I do enjoy some of the outdoor activities that summer lends itself to.¬†Well, I have an amazing new friend who has a pool. A POOL! With the heat that we’ve experienced this year, this […]

Monday’s Motivation

The only motivation I need is the drive to be better than I was yesterday. Run the Boy Scout Half Marathon in only eight weeks? Just watch me. Run the Churchill’s Half Marathon in November? Just watch me. Kick the Mercy Health Glass City Marathon‘s ass on April 23, 2017? Just watch me. Continue to […]

2016 Boy Scout Half Marathon & Tenderfoot 5k

Guess who got their laptop back!!! They did a factory reset and nothing else on it, so I need to reload everything and customize it again. I loathe doing all of this, especially since I just did it six months ago. Now that I am feeling better from my small injury after knee surgery #6, […]

Maturity is Overrated

I shipped my laptop off today to be fixed (I hope). So, I’m already missing having a laptop. My checking account was hacked today. My account wasn’t charged for the fraudulent activity, but still fucking sucks. I have PT today and I am hoping that it goes well. I need to get back to running […]
