From my first official run of 2013 for the Winter Runnerland Virtual Half that could be completed over time in the month of January, that I promptly got sick at the end, to my full-on training that I am trying to get back into, slacking on miles has called me to the carpet or pavement, if you will. I attempted what is my simple mid-level run this Saturday and seemed to find myself a blubbering, struggling, emotional mess. Yes, I have had quite a hard time finding the right fuel for pre/post workout, but there is no other excuse for my slide backwards other than the simple fact that I didn’t commit to my training like I should have.
That all being said, I have started a new week in my #Whole30 journey, just one day shy of the half-way point (Update coming tomorrow, 1/15/2013), and I am making a reaffirmed commitment to my weekly training sessions for my half-marathon which is now just 42 days away! Thanks to LÄRABAR’s Cashew Cookie and the simple baby food, yes baby food, from different companies that provide simple fruits and no added ingredients OR SUGARS in a purée pouch, I no longer need my go-to mid run fuel of GU Energy Gel which is not allowed on my #Whole30 program.
So in holding myself accountable, today I affirm that I will keep my commitment to myself of hitting the pavement and getting back on track. It wont take me long to get my stride back, I just have to defeat my mind that wants me to quit!
I loved this quote I posted this past weekend – People don’t defeat us, our minds do! I am working on that, and I hope that today’s appointment with the pavement helps me push through.
