I had a lame-ass run today, & now I'm frustrated. And, I topped off a bad run by eating a bag of trail mix. Who was I trying to punish? If it was myself, mission accomplished.

Okay, pity party for one is now over. I know that if I'm going to truly get better at both speed & mileage, I have to give myself a break & pace myself, so it's still enjoyable. At the same time, I need to believe in myself & keep working on it. Today I felt like 90% of it was mental, & that my brain was holding me back more than my body.

I'm over it & focused on having a fantastic day and work out tomorrow.

Hope you had a great St. Patrick's day, however you celebrated!


  1. Yay! You're in WA too! New day tomorrow--you will bounce back. I know you are just starting running, but there is a Girlfriends half marathon in October in Vancouver, WA that you could attend (or train for) and meet some other bloggers! I'm running in it!

  2. I have lots of Cougars in the family, so your WSU posts always make me smile. Love it! I am actually thinking of doing a 1/2 in July, knowing that I will likely need to walk some of it. I just want to keep signing up for races & stay motivated. I would love to do something in Vancouver - my sister lives there, so that would be fun & it would be so great to meet other bloggers. I'm off to look up the race info!
