I won’t lie. This week has been tough. I’ll spare you the details and leave it at I’m simply exhausted. Training was minimal as other priorities called. The runs that I did get it felt as if I was just sloshing out the miles to get them done. At this point, I honestly wouldn’t mind crawling into bed and staying there the entire weekend.
But, that’s just not going to happen, now is it? When I lose a bit of hope and begin to seriously lack motivation, one of the best inspiration is YOU GUYS! Creeping…err…reading your blogs is the best inspiration a gal can find! What are your favorite blogs to read for inspiration? (P.S. If you have a Blogger blog that has comments in line with your post – i.e. not in a pop-up window – my computer is going crazy and won’t let me comment. Sorry about that!)
After a solid commute hour home reading your blogs, I’m ready to take on the weekend. Tomorrow morning I’ll be heading to SoCal for the Surf City Half Marathon and to meet up with my lady friends. I originally had lofty goals of perhaps squashing my half marathon PR, but at this point, I am just aiming for anything under 1:50 and to simply enjoy my time in the warm weather.
I haven’t been back to this part of SoCal since Chicken Face and I got engaged; thus, I’m sure this trip will be a bit reminiscent, event though he won’t be with me.
Also, I’m bringing my new toy (taaa-daa….a Nikon D90…and yes, I took a photo of a nice camera with my cell phone) so hopefully I can capture something better than iPhone photos for this here lil’ blog. Do you know of any cute yet functional camera bags? I’m on the hunt for one now…
Happy running and I’ll be back with a full race report!
Day 37: 7 miles, speed work
