Time to Get Down to Business

I’ve been MAJORLY slacking in my half marathon training.

The race is 7 weeks away, so I don’t feel too panicked, but I know I need to pick up some slack. Work is particularly crazy – I worked 14 hours yesterday and anticipate all of October to be the same – so I’m burning out a bit.

But I’ve vowed to not let my stress/pressure/exhaustion get in the way of my work outs. I feel GREAT after I finish a work out. Why do I have such a hard time motivating myself to do them?!

Last week I managed a 3 miler on the treadmill and a nice 7 miler. I told myself this week would be different. And…not so much. I did a 3 miler on the treadmill on Monday and haven’t done anything since. I’m supposed to get an 8 miler in this weekend according to the training plan, but I’m not sure that’s going to happen.


Looking back at my dailymile stats from last year’s half training, I’m a little scared. In September 2010 I ran 62 miles. In September 2011 I’ve completed 32. Yikes.

Time to kick my own butt and put a little more effort into training. BRING IT.

I must remember what it feels like to FINISH!
