Goofy for Gasparilla, Part 5

Five days had passed before I could summon the energy to run again.  I had hoped to run during our camping trip last weekend, but the rain and humidity put a damper on my plans.  


Lately, I’ve been struggling to get out of bed.  I seem to have lost my momentum.  


Yesterday, I forced myself to do a 3 mile run, which seemed to be the kick in the ass jolt I needed to get me moving again.  Today, I ran 5 miles.  Tomorrow, I plan to run 4-6 miles.


My long Sunday run never happened, either.  All that worrying about the right distance for nothing.  But it’s time to get back on track, so this weekend I will try to run 10-12 miles.


Only one more week until Gasparilla.  I am a little nervous, but I know I can do it.  It’s all mind over matter when it comes to marathons, right?

    right mind over matter… long runs? who needs those! while i have learned (a lot) from my first-marathon-experience, i still don’t fully fear the distance. 2 weeks out though, that’s pretty much taper season.

    Ahh! I think you just miss your gimp of a running partner! You are going to great. I have all the confidence in the world that you will completely smash your Disney time and even come close to Palin’s time!
