9 miles w/ the Tribe...

Saturday, May 14, 2011

I had a meltdown running 7.5 mi two weeks ago. I felt alright running 6.2 last Sunday. I felt goood doing 4 mi on a trail on Tuesday, and still achey doing an easy 3 on Thursday.

I wasn't sure what to expect for today's run. TOM started yesterday. I stayed up too late catching up with Private Practice. I did not eat healthy for dinner. I was bloated for a variety of reason.

I went anyway, even though I tried everything to talk myself out of it. I just ignored myself, and went. Go figure.

After today, I'm able to believe, just a little bit more, I can do a Half. I appreciate it if all y'all KNOW I can do one, I really do. If I don't believe it in my heart, though, it'll never happen. Today, I'm that much closer.

Simply showing up and finishing is no longer enough for me. I do not expect perfection. I do expect progress, and improvement.

Today, I saw both, and I am happy.

    I totally get what you mean about taking on an audacious goal. It's too big to imagine really doing, but that's part of what makes the journey so cool. Somewhere in the last 2 weeks, I've figured out that I KNOW I can get through the sprint triathlon. I've done the training, and compared to most of the triathlon world it's going to be a sorry time, but it will be a fabulous time for me. I'm guessing my time will be about 2 hours plus transition times. We'll see... for me and for you. :)

    You rock for running your nine-and I have no doubt in my mind that you could (and probably will) run a half, a full or whatever you wish!!!!
    Great job.

    Oh Candy, I have no doubt that you can do a half. I remember a year ago when you did the Mayor's Walk. Look how far you've come. Hope you had a nice run this morning. I enjoyed the 2.5 mile walk and was happy it didn't rain. And my body is stiff. Can't imagine how yours feels. Have a great rest of the weekend!
