Ok, first things first…
I have passed on my Rotorua Half marathon entry. I did it without regret, and I actually feel relieved about it!
I know I could probably train haphazardly to be able to get to Race Day, but I wouldn’t be proud of a potentially poor result.
Lately it has a been a little bit ‘stress’ central in my house, so I am taking a load off and lessening the issues.
I have changed my focus to something more manageable.
I am going to chuck my Half Marathon plans for this year away.
Instead I am going to focus on improving my 5k and 10k times. I want to get speedy!
This, I think will be a fair compromise, and at the same time will benefit in the long run.
When I think back…
…It wasn’t hard at all to train for a Half. It was pretty straight forward, so there is no reason why I can’t do it again.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am dying a little on the inside, but I know it will only be a matter of time till I get back into those longer distances. God that ‘High’ is addictive!
All I want to do right now is get my legs back to 100%. I want to enjoy every run, not just the ones for events but the ones in between too!
And I want to get my shit together in every other aspect of my life, I guess this whole ‘Doing the Half, Not doing the Half’ issue has become the epitome of my life lately. And I hate that!
Less is more they say,
P.S. Totally bummed that I can’t be at Tarawera this month, even just to volunteer 😦 Will have to wait patiently for someone’s Race Report.
Also, Thanks to everyone who is supporting me, your kind words mean Smilyums! and that is a lot!!
Especially to Jared my hubby! The one who knows I am a little bit crazy but loves me anyway – If I say that I want to do an Ultra one day he will be right along side me saying “Ok, what do ‘we’ need to do to make it happen”
Love ya babe!
