I DREAD it !!
If it seems like I’ve been spending a lot of time complaining about the cold weather and how it’s playing a big role in all of my “issues” aka = lazy ass syndrome. It’s because I HAVE. And you only have 3 more good solid months of my bitching and complaining. I’m trying to do better…get into a better mind set, but it’s COLD OUT THERE damn it !!!! Brrrrr…..
I did make some progress this weekend. I started looking at races and trying to begin planning my 2012 race schedule. Training keeps me motivated. Makes me stick to what I want to achieve. But I’m honestly scared of committing. Training through the winter is going to be miserable ! At least I’m assuming so …since I HATE being cold. Do you have experience training through the winter months? Tell me it’s not so bad…
I’ve heard from ” Liz” a couple of times. Remember she’s the Ultra Super Woman who owns an Endurance Coaching Company with her husband. She was wondering if I was still interested in coaching. I had told her that It was probably not realistically in my budget. And since that’s one of my big goals for 2012 = to use my brain more. I would probably be holding off on the professional training. She obviously believes that I am a running prodigy with even more potential. Not sure how she got all of that from just talking to me on the phone…but it’s very apparent that she’s got the insight. She has said ” I will work with you….and make sure you achieve what you set out to do.” I’m thinking…she must see some racing sponsorship possibilities in my future. Or…..like the rest of us, hard economical times have hit her business too.
Either way…I’m pumping up myself for Saturday’s race! My goal is to have a better idea of race dates by the weekend and move forward with planning to plan ” The Plan”. !
Let’s talk winter training plans….
