Have you ever got so lost in a book when you finish you miss the characters (I can never spell this word), and wonder what they are up to now?
That's kind of how I feel about my training. It hasn't even been a week and I'm thinking about what I'm going to do with all my free time on Fridays.
As I mentioned a few days ago I put out some invisible vibes that led people to believe that I actually like to run and that I want to do more of it, which led to me agreeing to do another half marathon in August ON TOP of the half that I am already raising money for in October.
Go donate here!
This morning I was bored so I decided to look up more details of this small half I reluctantly decided to do in August.
Then I thought to myself... How far away is August
Oh that's right I only have 9 frickin weeks.
What the crap. Why am I so bad at math!!
Guess I don't have as much free time on Fridays as I thought.
You know what this race does have.... cowbells.
That's right spectators get cowbells and are asked to sit on "hard" parts of the race to support runners. Amazing.
There are some things I want to do a little differently this time around.
Like actually do my short runs.... thank you Lauren.
I would like to increase my pace so that the town of Jaffrey isn't waiting for me to cross the finish line, and remembering to wear sunscreen.
I have a little something special planned for the hubs on July 11th so I wanted to make sure I was in super good shape. I had planned on getting back in the gym and going hard until I heard that my gym closed, because it sucks and they finally got the memo.
So now I will be returning to home workouts like Body Pump, Jillian's 30 day shred, and some target workouts I put together myself. Lawd help me.
I tend to lose motivation when I workout at home so I am super thankful my boo Aubrey Leigh put together a new accountability link up on Fridays. Hopefully I can plan my workouts out for the week on Mondays and then check in on them on Fridays. We'll see. I like to say I'm going to do something and they throw you all off and do something else.
In other news. I have decided to celebrate my first half with a giveaway of all my running essentials. Keep an eye out. I will be announcing more details soon!
