Week 11 / TOT Week 3
Friday, October 24, 2014
and Week 10 of training for my half marathon in December. I'm going to be honest.. I'm tired of training. haha. This is the time when I think "why did I sign up for this?" Not necessarily because the training is hard, but because it's SO time consuming at this point. If I ran faster, it wouldn't take quite so long, but I no longer care how slow I am. I'm running dadgumit. I'll work on speed after the race. haha, the irony in that last sentence is NOT lost on me. So, I'm tired and exhausted and frustrated. I want to sleep in on Saturday's. Right now I'm out of the house by 5:45 A FREAKIN' M. to get to training early enough to stretch and use facilities.
My diet? haha. During the week I've been doing much better, but on Saturday's after a long run. there is simply not enough food.
I'm not beating myself up about this too much. For goodness sakes, I'm running double digits at this point. But... this was NOT the way for me to lose weight. haha. I AM getting stronger though. I know that. I just yearn for the day when I go for a reasonable distance run (2-3 miles) and come home and NOT eat the house. Also, I look forward to having energy left over after my run. There's none of that now.
I'm not "sorry" for this post. haha, I know it's a Debbie Downer. Just someone point me to this blog before I sign up for another blasted half. haha It's not inspirational. I know. I'll try to write one of those tomorrow after I've run 11 dang miles! WooHoo! That's insane to me. I am proud of myself. Tired, frustrated, exhausted... and proud.
