Brrrr. Must be November.
I'm pretty much recovered from the big push at work but all those extra hours + hubs traveling (oh yeah, he was gone the first half of this week, too) = derailed routine. And for me, training success is ALL about routine.
So, I'm struggling to get back into the pattern of getting up to do my workouts, get to work, get home to see the little guy & fix dinner/do house chores, then sleep & repeat. It's not easy, even though it feels so good once I'm actually doing it.
We've all been in this rut before and I know the way out is to JUST DO IT. Easy, right? Someone want to come kick me in the butt tomorrow morning, about 5:50 a.m.? I NEED HELP! Somewhere between September and now, I got lazy.
I look ahead to how soon Thanksgiving will be upon us and wonder when I'm going to get with the program. TIME IS WASTING! I'd REALLY like to do some races at the end of this year, after having taken so much time off from that damn calf explosion during Seattle RNR.
If I can suck it up & get off my Halloween candied ass, I will manage a decent finish to the Master Plan 2011:
Widdle Waddle Half (11/24) = I have no business going 13 miles in 3ish weeks but I can walk-jog if needed or just go REALLY easy. It's located just a few miles from my house & follows a decent running route.
Las Vegas RNR Half (12/4) = Already registered with girls from the bachelorette party. This will definitely be a mostly-walk event for us. Plus, Cheap Trick is the headliner! (ha)
Santa Runs Tacoma 5k (12/17) = This is what should be motivating me to get out of bed each morning. I had hoped this would be a target race, a grand finale for 2011 but I'm not sure if I can pull some speed together by mid-Dec.
Yukon Do It Half (12/31) = I've never run in Port Orchard and it just looks like a pretty place to run. I had hoped I'd be in shape to semi-race this (tempo run?).
Alright y'all, I'm tired of this blah attitude. Tomorrow morning I'm DOING IT! Or else I have face this page knowing I wimped out.
