Yeah, so ready to run…….
I don’t know why I vacillate so often…this morning was supposed to be, drive to the river valley, and head out for 10K
Then, well, I had breakfast….and then there was the news to catch up on (not really, I’m learning to hate newspapers, the TV 24 hour news cycle)….and finally, well, why am I driving somewhere to go for a run, when there’s a perfectly good sidewalk and trails just outside my front door…..?
So a pretty sweet almost 6K (5.58? seriously I couldn’t find .02?)…..but it felt nice…
The difference between early morning and 10 o’clock, no coyotes….
I’ve got to get my weekly distances in…I’ve committed to that..and to finding a good Air B&B in Vancouver……I’m going to come up about 20K short of this week’s goal….
Can I pick that up for week 3…..I don’t know?….the goal is the full marathon on May 7th….I think about 114 days away, that’s 114 days…..
I don’t care how slow I do that marathon…..and I’ve done this with minimal training…..10 marathons that I hardly trained for…but this seems different. Age?
I’ll just push on thru……what the hell else do I have to do…..
It’s been another positive day…..watching ski videos, Mikaela Shiffrin…..I’ve only ever cross country skied….and I never seeem to have the time……but I like the energy, and just like watching moutain and rock climbing motivates and inspires me….look for that everywhere, anywhere..
And it’s dinner and look forward to tomorrow time….lasagna! By dad…decided to skip the spinach this time out…am not sure why…but I found the wine to cook with not to put into what’s cooking…
I’m looking forward to the weekend for some reason…another 6K early, superearly tomorrow morning, a clinic to instruct at 10, have two amazing guest speakers coming to talk to my zoom crew about women and exercise and running……stoked is the word I use…..it’s become, I don’t want to say a passion, but learning and sharing and addressing a topic I don’t think I’ve ever seen presented a lot, if ever…and t’s huge, and considering the number of women in sport everywhere, it’s an important topic that can no longer be ignored…women are different…nutrition, hydration, training, competing, there’s things so many things that need to be addressed always….my clinic(s) that I’m looking after right now are about 90% female..so yeah, my focus…
Sunday…I need to get to 13K somehow, somewhere…I haven’t decided where yet, but I’ve two or maybe 3 options….but I will get that distance done, because I want to…..
And I think getting back to pumping iron this weekend may be due
I feel okay. I just need to focus, be committed…..bring on the weekend
