Thank Goodness for Structure

(source)
Being sick this week has made me realize how grateful I am that I am not on training plan right now.  I would feel like such a failure if I had been.  I know healing does not equal failing...but, well most of you guys are runners - you get it.

That being said - I am so happy to have a training plan starting next week as I aim to kill at the Jugo Juice 10k at the Calgary Marathon this year.  Sub 60 min.  I plan to own it.

It is great to have the structure of a training plan.  Ever since Goofy, I've kind of felt like I have been floating along (nay, flailing along) and as a result my eating has been crap and my consistency has been crap and the increasing weight on the scale is all I have to show for it.  DAMMIT!  

But Monday spells a new week.  My DietBet starts.  My training plan starts.  I will have a race to look forward to next weekend - St Paddys and perhaps (depending on how I am feeling next week) a chance at a PR.  

Things are looking up...I can hardly wait to begin.  I just need the weekend to prep.

  1. Sounds good to me! I know what you mean when you don't have a routine... I didn't have one once... It was awful (insert favorite Grumpy Cat meme here). Love hearing about your training. Can't wait to see you going after that 10K!
