Post first drink lip sized salt clearing.

Had to make sure it was post worthy! Even more so when the check came and it was only $7. (Since the margaritas were only posted on a white board without prices, we don’t think they actually had a liquor license.)

Given how the last two weeks of #halfmarathon training have gone, it’s amazing what you can set your mind to when you stay positive. #run #garmin

Uh, oh.

Half marathon training is nonexistent. This is problem. Any advice to get my head (heart & lungs too) back in it?

I got up and out the door, but didn’t get anywhere.

It’s the second day of half marathon training, take 2. 

Yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised by the huffing and puffing the ‘7 Minute Workout’ app put me through in two cycles.

Today didn’t go as well. Three miles, on empty with sleepy muscle? I’m not Hercules. Or Einstein. I couldn’t get over the mental struggle or the muscle tweaks with each step. I stop. I walked the last 1.5 home completely defeated. I cursed myself the whole way.

I turned to the internet for motivation and haven’t really found any. The majority of runners on tumblr and pintrest are either a) using it (mostly incorrectly) to lose weight and chisel their bodies, or b) are serious marathoners and ultra runner. It’s a bad cross between ‘Ew, gross.’ and ‘Yeah, right. Sure, let me join you.’ 

Everyone has bad runs, or so friends say. Am I the only vocal one?

I’m running for the challenge, to feel like I’m doing something, to be different, to be interesting, to have something. It’s really hard when that thing is so complicated. 

I can’t pace myself. I can’t break through the mental block. I’m paranoid of injury. I’m over thinking it all. 

Luckily, I have another shot at it tomorrow.
