A little something to remember this Monday.
Less than 2 weeks! In less than 2 weeks I will be done. Okay maybe not done but my 5th marathon will be in the books (I am optimistic that it will be a success).
I have now almost completed training for 5 marathons and it is true if you want to change your life train for a marathon. Each one has been different. My spring marathon I completed during the snowiest winter ever, completing four 20 miler runs on a treadmill (needless to say I try to stay a long way away from treadmills for this training plan!).
This summer brought it’s own challenges of relentless heat and humidity which only started to subside last weekend right after I finished my last 20 miler. That’s okay, my hope is that it will not be this hot and humid in Chicago in two weeks.
So this brings me to my quote for today. It’s one of my favorites and something to think about on this wonderful Monday!
Happy Monday! I hope you have a fabulous day!
As I taper towards my 5th Marathon on 10/11/15 this quote has jumped out at me.
My last 20 miler was completed this weekend and now I begin to taper and with it comes the mind games of whether I have done enough. I fight with myself to not go out and add on lots of extra miles. I know that I have to trust my plan and with this comes the confidence that I have completed 4 other marathons and yes it’s going to be hard but it can be done!
