“The road to hell is paved with good intentions, so when I fall, I will fall to you.”-The Chainsmokers
My loves! I’m sorry that I’ve been MIA for nearly a month. A lot has been going on in these parts. Traveling back and forth to New York City on the weekends. Running around like a chicken with my head cut off at work. Training for the Philly Marathon. In all honesty, at the end of my days, I didn’t have the energy to write posts. And rather than bore you with some blah blah blah, I decided to give myself a little blogging break and come back when I was ready to get writing again.
Life is weird sometimes. Just as some things start to fall into place in some areas of life, others start to slip. One weekend I nail a 12 miler like it’s a cake walk, but after two weeks, I can’t seem to finish 15-miles. Maybe my expectations of what marathon training should be are all over the place. When I set out for my long runs, my idea is to complete the run without stopping. Run the full distance. I want to run with first marathon without stopping. Is that unrealistic? Too much to ask of my body? I’ve said in previous posts that I feel like my runs aren’t as consistent as it should be at this point in training. Granted, a lot of it had to do with summer weather. But now that cooler temperatures are upon the City of Brotherly Love, I hope my running improves and I can get to where I want to be for November.
Any/all advice would be greatly appreciated for the down-in-the-dumps runner over here 🙂
