Each week I’ll update the status of training for the 2013 Dallas Marathon. I’ll also cover different topics such as training schedules, equipment and nutrition.
This week however, I will not be covering anything except my training. BUT BRANDY!!! I know, I know, you’re highly disappointed and I’m ruining your week. I get it. And I apologize. I have a good excuse……….ummmmm…………my dog ate my notes!?!
Okay seriously, I missed last weeks update and this week I’m struggling to stay up to date on life in general. Nothing bad just all part of training for a marathon. Early morning runs, full time job, friends, family it’s all part of it. Sometimes it’s matter of setting a schedule, doing it all and just hold on for the crazy yet boring ride.
Another thing about marathon training, prep yourself mentally for the dull days. The days when a run is just a run. It’s getting up before the chickens (not that I would know, I don’t have chickens), throwing on clothes and just going. No thinking, just running. Simple as it gets. And the next day. And the next day. And the next day. Sometimes, marathon training is just marathon training. It gets boring but it has to be done. Then there’s days where you have a break through workout or suddenly everything that’s troubled you is now super clear thanks to that run.
Sometimes updates are hard because there’s nothing new to report. If your lucky, there’s no injuries or drama. So today, I give you just another update. Simple and to the point. Yes, I’ve somehow forgotten what week I’m on and how many weeks are left. I just know I’ve put a week behind me and there’s more to come. So till next week………..Cheers!
