And Then Reality Hits…

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.

only 83 days away…sheesh!

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).
