|This is my friend Riana's rear end. She really owns these shorts. She saw my 4th of July recap and admitted that she had the same shorts as this lady. She said she got them from the water park at Valleyfair. So now I must find them!!!!|
2. Thank you for all the kind words and all the responses regarding my two questions yesterday. I got some great ideas. If you have been reading this blog for any amount of time you will know that:
- I am a terrible planner
- I set crazy goals (like doing a couch to marathon) and get completely out of sorts when I have a set back.
Aron from Runner's Rambles gave me this tidbit:
"i think with marathon training its important to look ahead and not back. don't try to "make up" things you missed, just move forward and adjust as necessary."
This is one thing is going to be the thing to help me get through my training. "Just move forward....". I have a tendency to get frustrated with failures and either quit or start over (as you may remember I dropped out of this race last year for the same reason....I never learn). I am not quitting. I have adjusted my goals for these races coming up and I have my runs on the calendar.
My goal is just to cross the finish line before they close the course. There will be other races to work towards improving my time.
3. I got back up on the horse yesterday and ran. The schedule said to run seven but because of my craptastic running streak, I was just going to do what I could and it was only 3 miles. It was a great 3 miles. I think 3 great miles are way better than 7 crappy ones.
