In 3 weeks will be marathon #4 in the books. Hopefully. This hasn't been the best training year for me. Running hasn't been very consistent until about a month ago. Yeah, I know. Cutting it close. I can go into the "whoa is me, no motivation" speech or "life is so busy" crap, but really it is the plain simple truth is this -- I am lazy. There. At least I am self aware enough to know that my natural tendency is to be a lazy slug and 50 percent of the time I can fight the inner slug. Since I know this I have to find more strategies to keep me from being lazy.
Here is one.
I signed up to for the Syracuse 70.3 Half Ironman on June 23rd.. Yeah. It was stupid and honestly, I am freaking out a little. No. I am freaking out A LOT. I can almost guarantee that since I plunked down the dough that this WILL be the worst winter on record. It probably won't stop snowing until June. I am looking at a winter of hell on a bike trainer. Which bring me to the fact that the longest ride I've ever done has been 30 miles and that was LAST spring. So. Now, the smartass that I am thinks I can do 56 miles on a course that is quote "challenging." Say it with me. SHIT.
Well. At least I will have some material to put in my blog.
BTW - it has been a super shitty month. Yesterday we had put down another one of our greyhounds, Sophie. She had bone cancer. This makes two in a month and three in less than a year. I've been self medicating with fried food and red wine.
We will miss you sweet girl.
