Whoa flashback to this song, you remember it?
Awww 2000, you were so good to me ;P ‘I like you, you like me….’
So I had a pretty rough week. I’m not going to go into too much detail (I figure I should draw the line somewhere), suffice to say I was out of it for medical reasons for a few days. It was very difficult and I had to get through some physical and mental pain. Dave and I decided the best cure for that is to set a goal and therefore we will be running the Negative Split Half Marathon in Spokane in April (let me know if you wanna join us)!!!! I’m very excited to focus some energy on my running, I had kind of been putting it on the back burner for a while.
Today was our first long run. Well, actually it was my first long run, Dave had gotten up to 7 miles, but reset the dial on his training when I decided to join him (HE’S THE BEST). We did 4 miles and it felt great. I did get a little mental thing going that was trying to slow me down around mile 2 but then I thought about the actual physical pain I was feeling and I created a new motivational catch phrase for myself “I’ve felt worst pain than this!” I repeated that to myself a few times and forgot about trying to cop out of my run. It reminded me just how much my limitations with running really are mental.
Oh Yeah, I was surfin’ the web today and I found this Seattle Indoor Triathlon, it looks like so much fun. I’m thinking I’ll do it, seems very ‘beginner triathloner’ (yeah I made that title up) friendly. My plan is to try and swim 10 minute consecutively at a pool this week and if I can do it with out stopping then I’m signing up.
