Here’s a recap of week 3:
Mon: Rest + worked all day!
Tues: Rest + worked all day!
Wed: 5 miles
Thurs: 5 miles
Fri: Rest + work
Sat: 7 miles
Sun: Rest + work
And for week 4, I didn’t run at all until today (Sunday – 3 miles).
So……. the lesson to be learned from these awful two weeks:
I need to make time to run! I need to find the balance in my life and work on time management. Once my class in done in 2 weeks and work settles down it will get easier, but I need to stop making excuses! I need to live an excuse-free life! I also need to find the discipline to run consistently, or else I will never have enough training to succeed.
So, my goal this week is to RUN EVERYDAY and to find time and balance in my life.
I started running with a good friend of mine from high school who is finally home for the summer! I am so excited that he is supportive of my marathon goal and wants to help me get there! He is one of the only people so far who has actually been supportive, and I am so thankful for good friends like him!
Does anyone have advice for staying consistent in running everyday? Or for time management or self discipline? I could really benefit from any tips and tricks! One friend of mine on dailymile (facebook for runners!!! go check it out!!!) suggested that food is a great motivator.
Here is her trick: if you don’t run, you don’t get any sweets or junk food that day!
I think that is a great idea for me!!! I need to have a better diet and I need to run more, so this might help me balance both things!
So anyway, I am excited to start fresh this week and make up for some lost miles! Please let me know if you have any advice or tips for me! Have a great week 😀
