Michelle decided she wanted to run the Revel Half marathon. I had already decided on a half marathon because I figure I’ve been out of the race game long enough I need to not jump in with both feet, head first, and maybe let’s do an ultra!!!
In case you haven’t learned, I tend to OVER do. I’m teaching myself to not do that.
I have run three of these and I love two of them. I’ve never run Revel. She ran Revel and did not enjoy it. So the dilemma.
WHAT TO DO.
She says Revel but I think she says that because she thinks that’s the one I want to do but I only want to do Revel if it’s the marathon. Otherwise I’m just not invested. I’ll run anything.
Plus if we do Steamboat we get to go out of town…somewhere gorgeous. And she’ll go camping but I’m so not going camping.
I’m still tweaking my training. I generally like to run A LOT but my time is limited and my body is angry so I’m going to say running is 3 to 4 days a week at the most and the other days will be cross training with yoga and strength. I’ll get more detailed with it in the days to come.
For now I’m happy to have a semi plan. Revel and Steamboat are both on June 3rd so the training doesn’t change. I mean, I should probably register (ha!) but other than that I’m okay to move forward. And now that I’ve said that, anyone that knows me pretty much knows that guarantees something will happen so I won’t get to run it but I obliviously move forward anyway. Because positive action Baby.
#myworkoutwas I ran 3.5 miles this morning and my lungs are very unhappy with me. I’ve been coughing all morning. Spring? Cold air? Too early? Who the hell knows but I sound like a good time and I also sound like I’ve had a good time…with several packs of cigarettes.
Hopefully it passes.
I love this quote.
