Becoming THAT girl.


A few weeks ago, I wrote about skipping a long run.

(My mom said it was a good post… and if my mom said it, obviously it’s true.)

In this post, I beat myself up for skipping said long run, and made a promise that things would be different going forward.

I was going to stop being a gigantic flake, for one thing.

And I was going to take the necessary steps to get back to where I used to be.

To be the person who ran 1:57 Half Marathon and a 4:12 Marathon.

Yeah. More of that.

I am proud to say that I HAVE stopped being a gigantic lazy person and have started kicking ass and taking names.

I am now running 5 days a week.

I have signed up for the gym and am doing double work outs.

I am doing speed work.

My Garmin registered over 120,000 steps last week.

I have joined Weight Watchers and am losing weight.

I have done both a 14 &ย  a 15 mile long run within the last two weeks.

I am doing hill repeats.

I ran my fastest Half Marathon of 2015 two weeks ago.

I am becoming THAT girl again… and I am damn proud of it.

    I have been going at it for 6 weeks and wish I started a little earlier to still have warmer weather. Sometimes, rest is good and sometimes doing a gimme workout is good. Enough to get a sweat and be able to stretch. IDK what to do on this day and I will let my body tell me as sometimes we can’t be machines. ๐Ÿ™‚

    As someone who has stopped, started, and flaked myself, let me just say good job! Just make sure you are building in enough rest time with all those workouts. Rest is when the building happens that takes you to the next level.
