It's week 7 of my marathon training and I'm behind. I just keep thinking...what if I fall so far behind that I fail to train sufficiently? What if I can't run the marathon? What if I never heal? What if? What if? What if?
I'm gonna try to amp up the cross training and strength training, but I am so scared of losing my running fitness. Sorry to whine and vent so much, but ARGH!!!!!! That's all I have to say about that.
Let's try to end this post on a positive note, shall we? I'm proud to announce that I'm still moving right along on my hundred pushups challenge and I am really kicking ass, y'all! Go me! I finished the first two weeks fairly easily and worked my way up to 5 sets totaling almost 50 in one workout. Week 3 is a significant step in difficulty. Repeating the second week is recommended if you are unable to do 16 consecutive pushups on the 2nd test. Well, last night, I did that test and got to 18 before reaching exhaustion. Two weeks ago, I could only do 8! To reiterate my previous point, Go me! So tonight I'll start week 3, which is 15, 12, 12, 10 and at least 15 on the last set.
Well, I reckon that's all for today. Just remember to think of poor, poor, pitiful me while you're out there pounding the pavement (I suggest that you don't pound too hard, though, or you'll end up like me).
