no motivation

I’m seriously lacking in motivation this winter season. I can’t really run outside, especially with this subzero weather we’ve been having sooo that leaves the treadmill which is hard for me to run longer than thirty minutes. I’ve been focusing on strength training which means lots of lunges, squats and planks. But that’s a bit boring too but at least I can bust out a quick workout in 20 minutes or so. I really want to set up my race schedule for the spring/summer/fall 2014 but I need to wait for some funds to become available. I’m thinking January, I’ll be able to sign up for the big races, a 7k in March, a half in June (either in Duluth or Mpls), 26.2 in Oct and I’m sure I’ll sign up for more 5ks, 10ks and 10 milers as the year goes on. I want 2014 to be a nice and full season of races. I just love races.


gone and done did it

Well, I signed up for a half marathon! holy shit balls. ๐Ÿ™‚ I’ve got until October 20th to train and be ready. I’ve got two races coming up too, a 5k in September and a 10k in early October. whew. fun fun fun.

I’m going to start another blog just devoted to running and training. I’ll post my runkeeper and journal updates there.

This year has just been so amazing. 2013, the year of unbelievable change and growth! woooo


more running stuff

so I do have a lot of training to do before October if I want to be able to run a 10k. Sometimes my obsessive behavior comes in handy as long as I use it for good and not evil ๐Ÿ˜‰ If I get into the 10miler, I’ll have to push myself even harder. but I know I can do it. I need to get down a training plan and then stick to it. I want to run a couple more 5ks before October, I should find one to do in August and one to do in September. ย The great thing is, I can run a race early Saturday morning and still get to work by noon hah!

I will be signing up for the lottery for that race next week when registration opens. so that means the weekend of Oct 5/6 I’ll be (hopefully) running two races! who am I?? hahah. i love it.
