Tuesday 3 February – Saturday 15 February
This has not been a good few days for running training.
From Tuesday 3rd to Monday 9 February I simply took on too much to do. There was no time for running, I was too tired to even go for my walk each morning and it was a good lesson in realising that I am still not Superwoman despite all my attempts for being all things to all people.
Thursday 5 February – Group run with Karen but she gave us the option to run for an hour or 1.45 hour. I dropped out at 1 hour to catch up on some work.
No more running until the next Thursday 12 February – had another 2 loop option to drop out at. Did that again and felt no guilt or remorse as I feel that there is still enough time for me to get my arse into gear and make this a reasonably successful Reading Half Marathon.
I am running Sunday. I am going to run for 90 minutes. There. I said it now.
There comes a point in any of these challenges and commitments we put on ourselves when we are tested to see how much we’ll give up for it. Well, these past few weeks I have realised that right now my work comes first, then my recovery (sleep) and then the running. I don’t beat myself up over it because I understand that if I really wanted to run, I’d find a way 🙂
