I’m only on week 3 of my marathon training and I have felt more tired. I know that there are other factors to think about, stress from work, anxiety about the future…etc. I ran my fastest 4 miler on Wednesday, 34:32. Yippy! Felt proud and no soreness. I skipped Thursday’s 3 miler and today is a rest day so I will make it up. I planned on heading out an hour ago but it’s all good, I’ll leave in a bit, I have the day off. Yay for not having to work! Tomorrow is a set back on our long run, only running 5 miles, but then next week we’re back up to 9. This marathon goal has me pumped because it is a big deal to me. There was a time when I was told I wouldn’t be able to go back to school, be physically fit, or let alone run! I feel a sense of accomplishment just setting the goal because I know I can reach it! So here I am, nervous, unsure, and feeling doubtful, but yet going to run a full marathon. I don’t know if I will be employed after Thanksgiving but oh well, I’m sure I’ll find something if the job I’m waiting on doesn’t work out. I look forward to feeling genuinely happy. I’m not there yet so instead I will run and find that happiness 3 miles from now.
