I'm just about ready to head out on my traditional Sunday Morning Run. The run I so look forward to (except when it is freaking cold out). Just wanted to clear my head before I go out.
I have just been been exhausted this week and it affected my training plans. I hope next week is better. When stuff stops me from achieving my training gooals, I find myself fighting THOSE thoughts again. The ones that say I'm never going to be any good at this, so maybe I should just give up. How can I expect to go longer or faster if I can't even find the energy to do my planned workouts? Who am I kidding, I am *not* an athlete, much less a triathlete.
I need my run this morning if only to drive those thoughts out of my head!!
On a more positive note, I have been thinking about ShyTriGirl, Geek Girl, and Chad who were all doing Sprint TRIs this weekend - looking forward to race reports.
And....husband, son, & I are running a 5K next Sunday. It will be son's 5K debut! I hope this is the beginning of something for him.
UPDATE AFTER RUN: My run was supposed to be 70min. I ran a little far before turning around and it ended up taking a few minutes longer than planned. Somewhere on the way back, I heard my own voice say out loud "Don't give up, Lisa".
ONE MORE UPDATE:
