Well last week was busy! Disney released a new promotion for 2014 that I was able to apply to my clients existing reservations saving them thousands of dollars! That kept me very busy making modifications and updating files.
Hubby was out of town on a commercial shoot so it was just me and the boys.
Weight watchers week one was a success! Down 1.5 pounds. I’ll take it. Better than gaining.
I didn’t get to the gym as much as I wanted to, but I did get my training runs in. 3 miles on Tuesday, 2 on Thursday and 3 on Friday.
I should have ran the Baltimore Running Festival Half Marathon on Saturday but wasn’t able to due to hubby being out of town. No one to watch the boys. So I did the next best thing. I ran while watching it! I didn’t run 13.1, but I did get in the 6 that was on my training schedule.
SLOW as molasses!!! SLOW. When I started running I was so much faster. Averaged a 10:30 mile, now look at me! No excuses really. Just got lazy and I know certain people who are on my ass all the time about it will agree. How do I expect to get faster without training.
I sat and watched two amazing races this weekend and a saw a lot of amazing runners have great races and it made we want more. I want that PR, I don’t want to settle anymore with my slow as molasses time.
So, what to do about it? Well, obviously put in the work. I know an amazing runner and coach who has offered to help me over and over and over again, he even put together a plan for me to improve my 5K time. BUT, I didn’t put in the work. I was too busy. Found something else to do. Didn’t do it.. blah.. blah.. blah. I’m surprised he still talks to me.
Well, this amazing coach has offered to help me again (who knows why). I am focusing on the Walt Disney World Half Marathon this January and I know if I follow his plan it will happen! Gotta have faith in myself and in the training! GOTTA put in the training!
THAT is my new motto!
So having said that, on tap this week training wise.
Mon – Body Pump Class
Tues – Run 3 miles
Wednesday – Pilates Class
Thursday – TBD (waiting for training plan) but it will be some form of speed work
Friday – Cardio Blast Class
Saturday – 7 mile long run
Sunday – Rest
With faith, trust and pixie dust!…………..
