public declaration = accountability
i'm really mad at myself right now. i'm in the middle of my half marathon relay training and i haven't been running. what is wrong with me? last year my fitness, after my family, was my number one priority. i've been a major weekend warrior in regards to my training and only running my long runs on saturdays and running one day a week. for the past two weekends i haven't even done that. i need a swift kick in the ass. i have less than a month to go. i know i can do it but man, i'm having a hard time finding the time to run. part of the problem is i'm scared to run alone, but i don't like running with people either. i mean, i like running with people, but running is hard for me and the first three miles are not fun for me. the last thing i want to do is chat. once the runners high kicks in i'm fine, but i have to play mind games with myself to get to that point. i have to tune everything out and mentally be alone. so, it's time to get busy. the big day is june fifth friends, and between now and then i'm going to be running like a mother...literally and figuratively.
the run i'm training for is very important to me, so i'm going to lay it on the line every sunday in order to hold myself accountable. now i'm accountable to you too.
monday- get up at 4:30. insane i know, but gotta get it in when i can fit it in. go to gym, run 30 minutes, eliptical 30 minutes, weights 30 minutes. possibly run with my running girls in the evening if everyone's schedules jive. this is going to require lots of caffeine.
tuesday- 30-45 minutes treadmill.
wednesday- get my ass handed to me at spin class at 5:30 am.
thursday- 30-45 minutes treadmill.
friday- ass in hand again, spin class at 5:30 am.
saturday- long run with my teamies.
sunday- rest day
what do you declare this week?
happy monday friends!
