Oh darlings.. I feel like such a slacker right now. My running this summer has been terrible, and what makes it worse is that I have this lil thing called a marathon that I’m supposed to run in less than 3 months.
Can we say unprepared?
Lots of things have been going on lately, some not so great, others still so so, and then there were the bright spots, but I wish that I could say that in spite of it all my running never skipped a beat. Indeed…it skipped several. I don’t know what the next couple of months are going to have in store for me, but I can tell you with all honesty that I am hoping that when September hits and all of my races start to come up (I’ve got a couple of half marathons and 10ks sprinkled in there) that I will find my groove again. In the meantime, since I really do feel myself getting tired of not running, I may just adjust my August running plan to a point where I am reacquainting myself with getting back out on the road. My longest run this summer was last week and that was a torturous 5 miles. Yea…5 miles
*insert face of mild disapproval here*
That said, I guess August should be the time to build, and build slowly. Then by September I should be building bigger with the races I have in store, and come October…well let’s just say that I do have a back up Marathon in mind in the event that the MCM does not pan out the way I’d imagined…as in I DNF (do not finish).
