Schedule Update

I have to update my running schedule again...

Due to some peer pressure at work, I have no signed up for the 20th Anniversary of Donald's Half Marathon during marathon weekend at Disney World.  A bunch of coworkers were signing up so I ended up signing up with them.

I turned the peer pressure around and convinced my roommate to sign up as well.  This is definitely a bit more of a social event now more than anything.  It's going to be fun!  That's for sure!

Caught Back Up

It seems as though I'm always trying to catch up to where I used to be or where I've been trying to be.   Last month with the visits and illness and just plain old busy life I fell off.  I'm happy to say that I've kind of caught up to where I used to be.

This morning I ran a strong 6 miles that made me feel accomplished and proud of myself.  I felt good with my biggest complaint was that i could feel a blister trying to form on my foot.  I can attribute that to my new socks though.

I'm definitely a little tired, but overall feeling good.  I'll be headed out to try some stand up paddling for Earth Day today.  We'll see how this goes!

April Catch Up

This whole month has felt like I was just trying to catch up where I was last month.  My training fell off my plan because I had friends over and I got sick.  Since then my body has decided it likes being lazy and my diet has had great weeks and terrible weeks.

Luckily over the last few days I had a few reminders about why I was doing what I was doing.  First, I received my run3rd medal and t-shirt from that virtual race and then I was able to watch a part of the Inaugural Star Wars Dark Side 10k this morning.  Between the two a sense of motivation was renewed within me.

The good news is my schedule has gone back to a 5 day work week with real days off again (some weeks I work all 7 days... making training a bit tricky) and I should be able to pick up my training again until my parents get here for their trip.  Even then, we're staying at one of my favorite running resorts so I'm actually pretty excited about that when it comes to my running.

So yes, I've only run about 11 miles this month and will be hoping to run about 10 more before the month is done... whether or not that will happen, who knows, but I'll definitely be trying for it!
