So technically I should be tapering this week, but since my longest run was 10 whereas last year it was 22, I am thinking I should just keep going this week. (within reason of course) Reason: something that took a long time for Karin to fully comprehend. She seems to missing the DNA that carries this term in its code. Indeed she may act without again. To which the blogger world and any friends are free to draw me back to reality.
I joke, but I really have learned some tough stuff. Some of which, I have already tried to implement consistently. I have done bootcamp 2 times a week this entire cycle as well as bike riding, spinning and Vinyasa Yoga. Although the last two weeks, I did not do spinning or Yoga. Our weather was crappy and I was focused on surviving my toddler instead of training.
But we survived and pushed through.
We ran our 10 miler on Monday. I trained Logan c25k doing 3 miles on Tuesday. Boot camp was cancelled this week b/c we didn't have a group and my hubs surprised me with David Crowder tickets. Oh so good for my soul. We didn't get home until after 1 am
We felt like total rock stars.
Last night, I ran with Val. Just a short 3 miler in 41.
This morning, I ran 7 in 80 minutes with Tina. Sure had missed her. I was happy with that since I train at a slower pace.
Sunday night, we ran 6 in 81. That was after bootcamp.
My plan is to drink lots of water all week and keep it easy. I am going to do Vinyasa Yoga on Thursday to really stretch everything out.
And oh yea about that marathon. I am in need of major blog prayers. Yea that and an updated playlist. Any suggestions are more than welcome! I feel confident but only by God's grace to help me complete and enjoy it. I haven't really thought about it b/c it just seems so crazy. But now it approaches and I am getting pumped. It is a beautiful course and I checked weather.com. Looks like 55 and sunny. It should be a gorgeous day.
I won't be going into worrying about pace but rather getting across the line....with all those lessons I've had to learn this past year with multiple injuries and one surgery. As cheesy as this may sound, I want to walk hand in hand with Jesus on that day, just enjoying HIm, enjoying my surroundings and enjoying the lessons He has taught me.That will be glorious. I will cross a changed woman. To god
I know a lot of marathons are going on right now. Which one will you be doing? What secrets do you have that keep you positive when you are aching and want to quit!
