Now You Know & Knowing Is Half The Battle…

I’ve been sick for a few days and couching like a bad ass. This means I haven’t been running or lifting.
This means I feel like I am the laziest person alive. Okay, at least one of the top 10 laziest people alive. I have a friend that kept me company and that made couching a lot easier to handle.
I have no clue what numbers 1-8 are all about, as I just stole this, but number 9 seems to sum up my thoughts.

Even when my effort is sub par, I need to remember that I’m trying and that’s half the battle (G.I. Joe!).
I am bomb at getting to the gym and getting in my runs. I am not as amazing at eating within my macros.
When I plan my food out the night before and when I meal prep for the week, I have SO much success with eating. I’ll tell you that all of these delicious Oreo flavors are really making this rough. Remembering that even small steps are steps in the right direction.

Dave’s Fall Marathon In Training begins next Monday and I was entering all of the training sessions into my planner and I always forget how much training a half marathon/marathon takes. It’s almost like it’s brand new every season.
Long runs are on Saturday’s at 8:00 a.m., which means I have to adult like a boss and go to bed at a respectable time on Friday’s. I have two more long races in the books for the year: Boy Scout Half Marathon and Churchill’s Half Marathon. I am just praying that my knee and heart stay happy for them.

Do you train with Dave’s or with a training group in your city?
