I’ve relaxed since the half marathon. I’ve relaxed the way I train…meaning I haven’t done too much running on my off days. I’ve relaxed in the way I eat, meaning I haven’t really cared what has gone into my body.
I’ve used the excuse that there is something a little off with my left foot. Which there is, but that’s no excuse not to eat well. So I’m back. Today marks no cheat days till my birthday. It may sound like a big deal, but that’s just a couple of weeks away. But this means I’ll have to go through detox all over again, which I’m not really looking forward to, but it’s worth it.
I swear when I don’t eat right, I can tell it in my training. It’s the craziest thing. I stay sore longer when I’m not eating well. My body is too busy fighting off the poisons I’m putting in my body to take care of itself.
So I stay sore.
And I’ve realized that without a goal to work towards, I don’t do well. So I’m working on that. Of course, I have a size of clothing I’d like to be in at the end of the journey, but I need small victories along the way. It’s just the way I’m wired.
So I’m taking suggestions.
I’ll consider your suggestion and go forward from there. If one looks more fun than another, of course I’m going to pick the fun one. So don’t suggest anything crazy like a full marathon. This chick can’t handle that. But I am open to other suggestions!
So throw them out there!
What do you think I should be working towards?
