I got off my lard behind today and ran to work…10.7km. It was hot as hell in the pre-dawn light but never the less I toughed it out with minimal fuss. There was a lot of huffing and puffing though. What has me depressed and motivated at the same time (which is a little weird) has been looking back at my schedule for last year and realising what a completely different place I am in right now. This time last year I was running to work in the morning and then running home again in the evening twice a week. For a start the weather must have been cooler, but just checking out the kms I was covering at the same time last year has me worried that I won’t even come close to a PB for the Half marathon in May. What I need to focus on is the fact that my goal this year is solely the Marathon. Last year I was training for the SMH half in Sydney.
Oh dear, I have the feeling I jsut tried to blurt everything out at once so none of the above will make sense…I am not game enough to re-read it.
