and then this happens...
|I need to run 5 miles just to un-do this. Holy crap.|
Maybe signing up for another marathon will help keep me on track? Yup, that's right...never thought I'd say this again but I'll be running 26.2 miles this fall! I'm really excited about the Outer Banks Marathon. My best friend Erin is doing this one with me just like Nashville so I'm pumped about that...everyone say a little prayer to the Boston gods that she qualifies :)
I'm not embarrassed about my first marathon time or anything, but I just have this need to redeem myself. I just know that I can do better. Many bloggers recommend setting three goals so here goes:
a) finish the race
b) finish with a PR (under 5:14)
c) finish under 4:45
I know I said I was following the RLRF plan for a half marathon this September, but I haven't been sticking to it :( I'm switching over to the RLRF plan for a full marathon and I'm definitely sticking to it. I think posting the plan for my weekly work-outs will help keep me accountable. My race schedule is getting ridiculously full. I'm psyched for this fall! :)
1. What keeps you motivated with your training schedule? Do you have to sign up for a ridiculous number of races like me?
2. Are you good at controlling your cravings? I seem to have no self control. I can't just have a bite, I have to eat the whole chocolate bar! :( Help me.
Happy Running (and healthy eating),
