Tidbits of My Life

I ain’t a record holder and all…

…But this is purty much what I said yesterday ~

RW Daily Kick in the Butt

I pretty much know how to train, but I need to pay more attention to smaller details, like recovering better, and to the signs my body gives, whether it’s fatigued or ready for more mileage on a given week.

I’ve decided to run Las Vegas then take a break

I need the proper amount of down time after running a marathon and then the proper training. This is all something I can do on my own. But as is stands now I continue to push myself, because life gets in the way and then I try to make up for it with driving myself with speed or time and get hurt or injured and have to take time off. Then I get angry with myself for trying so hard. WHY??!!

I accomplished something on May 31, 2009 that many people will never have the opportunity in their whole life to do..I crossed the FINISH LINE of a MARATHON.

I truly and honestly think about this when I run. The people who can’t walk or run. And the people who couldn’t run before, but do now and have become my inspiration for running.

I would’ve never thought in my wildest dreams any day prior to two years ago that I would say that let alone say it twice. And there WILL be more to come. But it doesn’t make sense to continue to damage myself. If I want to continue to do this thing they call a marathon…I once again need to train SMART. I want to do this RIGHT and not HALF ASS!! Technically that is what I’ve been doing and I only cheating myself.

Fall run

I love Fall but he pressure change is taking a toll on my knees.

Did this run with no gels. Felt pretty good. I got a cold bath waiting to cure the aches. Then it’s off to the Air Show
