I feel like I’ve been so busy living life lately, that I haven’t found the time to write about it… which was the whole point of this blog!
As far as my workouts… Waking up every morning with a workout laid out for me is still the best thing ever! It gives me the confidence to know that I will make it through the next year and cross the finish line next November. Follow the plan… Trust in the plan 🙂 Of course, when my plan says easy 3-mile run it’s even easier to love the plan. (Just wait until it says 15 or 20 mile run and then ask me how I feel about the plan)!
Having a coach and a plan also gives me more accountability. There have been a few workouts on the plan that I haven’t been thrilled about doing (ok, maybe only one) but I did it because it was on the plan. And a few days after the workout I was finally able to look back on it and realize it was probably good for me to push myself a little and jump out of my comfort zone.
I probably also would not be using this lovely torture device as often if it weren’t on the plan.
It turns out just rolling back and forth on a foam roller is not exactly what you’re supposed to do. Who knew?? I thought just rolling on it was painful enough… And then I learned how I should be using it. Now my neighbors probably think I’m being tortured in my living room twice a week. But it’s on the plan so I’m doing it!
And of course there’s my bike! There will be a whole post about the bike and that decision-making process shortly…
