So I've averaged 1 run a week in the last month. It's been a combination of the house move, my groin injury, bringing Izzie home and just trying to settle the animal family back down, and now the cold that I am nursing. And, did i mention, i've started smoking again.
Not great. Not sure if 'two steps forward, one step back' would even be accurate. I don't think I'm any worse off than when I started back in May, but then I'm probably back near baseline again.
Still, I'm staying focused on Nov 29th - the Unicef Run for Children 10k. And I'm still going to nail that half marathon, no matter what the time. I need to do this, because there is no-one that says 'I can't' if I say 'I can!', but I do need to show myself.
and then, following 'I can' is the 'I will'. No one tells that building and giving yourself to this 'will' can be as hard if not harder than believing the 'can'.
