Monday: Cycling 12.6 mi, 45 minutes (16.8mph)
Saturday: 14 miles at 8:40 pace/mile
Ummmm..... Let's list some excuses:
- My foot was still bothering me from my 12 mile LR the week before, so I wanted to rest it.
- I came down with a cold last Sunday and didn't feel like doing much of anything unless I
was being whined at by a small childhad to.
- My mother-in-law was in town from Wyoming and we wanted to spend as much time with her as possible.
- NyQuil makes it really, really, really hard to get up in the morning.
My run on Saturday picked up my spirits- thanks to 3 friends and a some lightly falling snow that did most of the heavy lifting. I ran with Jami and Breona (who just celebrated her 30th Birthday! Yeah buddy!) for the first 7 miles, and then picked up my friend Kristen for the last 7.
It made me realize something- I run for fun. Know what I think is fun? People. Right now, at this point in my life, running a 3:30 marathon isn't worth it if that means I have to train alone.
So, I'm training for a marathon- with friends!
For the first time in two months, I feel really excited to run the Ogden Marathon. I know it will be fun, I know it will be rewarding, and I know I'm going to enjoy every step of my journey along the way.
Here's to a better week this week!
What makes training enjoyable for you?
