I'm a little behind in my posting here. I'm trying to write what I've missed and back post them. I just posted one on the Cascades 10K Firechase. You'll be seing more posts pop in between here and there. My training has been ok. I've had some misses, and I think not posting on here regularly anymore makes that a little easier to write off and brush off the skipping of a session. Part of the point in starting this blog was to make me more accountable for my workouts. I think it helps, so I am trying to get back into it. Things have gotten busy, so 3 training posts a week, plus any other posts I want to make is a little much with everything else that's been going on. I may need to switch to a weekly recap of my training. I know I wanted to see the numbers get really high by the time I ran in Disney, but I may forgo that as a time management item. I may try that, and as long as I keep up my training, go with it. I haven't decided yet. We'll have to see. I want to blog more than once a week on here, so that will require a secondary post each week, which I'm ok with.
As I said, I've had some misses on my runs. Some have been skips, some have been unintentional misses, others were unfortunate decisions. The biggest one was this past weekend, I never got in my 8 mile run. I'm disappointed I never got that run in. That I let it slip away. Some things adjusted the schedule, and shifted the run around repeatedly, but in the end, it was my responsibility to run and I didn't do it. I do really think I need to stick to my runs first thing in the morning, whenever possible, because the afternoons and evenings are more likely to have situations arrise beyond my control.
Of course, I say all this after sleeping through my run this morning. I don't remember it going off, and my phone has been having some sound oddities lately. However, I cannot rule out me turning off my alarm without realizing it. I have done it before.
I'm resolved to do better. I'm resolved to improve. I'm resolved to kick my weight loss into some better gear as well. I do enjoy running. I do enjoy the races. I do enjoy the challenge.
