Not sure how I let a whole month go by without posting. I feel completely busy but unaccomplished. I feel like I’ve been running around in circles (well I did do 4 5 mile loops = 20miles on Saturday).
The Philly Marathon is exactly 6.5 weeks away and I’m…over it. I’m not even burnt out. I’m an incredibly impatient person so 18 weeks of training is not only physically painful but mentally as well…as in the “can we get this over with already?” I JUST WANT TO DO IT ALREADY. I guess I’m just really anxious. I also don’t feel like I’m going anywhere – I’m not getting faster, not getting in shape, I’m just kinda existing in the marathon training program. I guess that’s what happens when my only goal is to actually get to the start line and finish the marathon.
September always really feels busy. Because of that I’ve ended up taking more rest days than I should have then again, I had a terrible cold during a week that I had a last minute hearing with a type of case I’ve never handled before. As for the good stuff: two wine festivals, both my parent’s birthdays, and two yelp events (aka I’ve just been doing a lot of eating in addition to working or running).
