Running motivation is deep in my soul. On most days anyway. 🙂
I love looking back in the past for Wednesday Rewind. It gives me a clear understanding of how far I’ve come. This was actually a post from last year this time.
I decided to pull it out of the Fantabulous Day Blog vault. That was the blog name back in the day. 🙂 This gives me running motivation like nothing else.
Back before my 1/2 Marathon, I wrote…..
I have eyes on other running blogs and I also listen to several running podcast. There I can find lots of running motivation. Since one of my goals with this blog is to inspire others, I thought I would start posting my training for the week.
I do post my runs on my 1/2 at 6000 ft page (currently removed), but I wanted to also post a quick update weekly on the home page.
This is just another way for me to hold myself accountable and to also, hopefully, inspire others to get moving.
I write on this blog for accountability reasons as well. I always say “If you say it out loud, then you have to follow through”. 🙂 Writing in a journal is one thing, but blogging is taking journalizing to a greater level. I’m sure all bloggers would agree.
I’ve been know to start things and then get demotivated, but this time I’ve committed to the Disney 1/2 marathon and I’m all in, mind, body, and soul. I already paid my hefty entrance fee and am really looking forward to doing the run.
Any who…. here is my week in review:
My main goals I accomplished for this week:
15 miles, the goal was 20.9 mile.
Long run was 6+, the goal was 7+. I am OK with this 6+ That was darn good for me.
That’s great running motivation for me. Don’t you agree?
My focus was on form and running longer. I had been running for 30 mins at lunch and I have extended that to 40 mins. I have been going a bit slow, but I can usually get in about 3 miles at a time, which is good.
Another week down and one week closer to January 13th.
This was written in August of 2012. Now look at me. The Disney 1/2 Marathon is well under my belt and I’ve other race events in my sights. You can check out how I did from my Disney 1/2 marathon race report. Don’t kill yourself laughing. If I can run Disney anybody can.
Now thats running motivation for ya!
