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!
