Berlin wasn’t a sufferfest. Because I didn’t run it.
I had a really great holiday, and Berlin will be there for me to run another time. And while that’s true, it still leaves me disappointed in myself for not putting in what was needed so that I could run it this time.
True, work threw me a really shitty hand. But I made excuses. And I could have got a better result than I did.
So, here we are again. But this time, I’m all in.
I’ve got a training plan – it’s worked before. It will work again this time.
I’ve got a new nutritional strategy (LCHF) to lose weight and train better.
I’ve got a daily check of strength and stretch work to do. Injury free is the way to be!
What are we aiming for? Gold Coast Marathon and then Melbourne Marathon. 2018 will be staying local.
The running was so much better than it has been. Let’s hope it just keeps improving with Berlin just around the corner.
I spied some starfish in the bay on my long run today. I took a little time out to take a pic and enjoy the view of clear water and gentle waves. When you spend so much of your time during the week in the hustle and bustle of city life, I think it’s good to take a time out and enjoy some nature.
Dinner tonight was super yum! Homemade taco bowl for the win!!
Crazy cat lady that I am, I just melt when the little ones snuggle with each other.
I had a Dexa scan done – it’s so cool! I love being able to see what’s going on inside me. Not posting the fat/muscle/etc pic (internet don’t need to see that!) but check out the skeleton! Good to see some healthy bones there.
Remember that time I ran (ahem, shuffled) the New York City Marathon? It seems a life time ago. But I’ve got to keep it fresh because I need Berlin to be better.
