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.
