I Skipped A Long Run.


So this, my friends, was my weekend in a nutshell.

Did I clean my house?

Nope.

Did I go to the grocery store?

Nope.

Did I take out the trash?

Nope.

Did I do my long run?

Nope.

I sat on my couch on Sunday afternoon beating myself up for doing absolutely nothing all weekend.

I have a half marathon in less than 2 weeks and I am skipping my long run?

Who am i?

I reminded myself that the old me would have NEVER skipped a long run and been a gigantic lazy ass all weekend.

ThAT girl wasn’t lazy.

THAT girl ran a half marathon in 1:57.32.

How did THAT girl do it?

THAT girl ran 5 to 6 days a week and averaged 35-40 miles.

THAT girl went to the gym.

THAT girl took spin classes.

THAT girl did double workouts.

THAT girl did speedwork.

spin

THAT girl worked her aSS off.

I want to be THAT girl again.

In order to get there- THIS girl is going to have to make some changes.

    That sub 2 hour half just screamed out at me 🙂 really awesome 🙂 those long runs can be intimidating. I haven’t really had any long runs this year other than halfs & full which were races. not sure i’ve done much more than 6-7 miles in any one run all year. but …with that new training program you sent me… 🙂 I’m trying to think of it as the only day of the week where I have to work …oh ..and maybe again with the speed work and tempo runs but that all should equal improvement, right? 😀
