6 Weeks to the Half

The reality has sunk in.

This year was my year, the year I would rock the half and gain the confidence I need to get training for my first Marathon. I signed myself up for 3 half marathons and intend to run a few 10 k’s as well. While I am super stoked to get more races under my belt, I am also freaking out a little bit. My first half this year will be in Whistler. On June 7. Just 6 short weeks away.

Any guesses as to how many times I have ran? If you guessed 5, you’d be right. The total mileage I have aquired over these 5 runs? Maybe 25…in total…I’m in trouble…

SO. Now it begins. My 6 Weeks to a Half Marathon training program. I don’t have it all worked out yet but somehow I know I will make it through the fartleks, hill repeats (which are absolutely necessary for Whistler) and the long, steady runs. The lunges, the planks and the med ball drills.

Also. My diet lately? Mainly consisting of everything I know I shouldn’t be consuming. Too much coffee, not enough H20…

It ends now…well, after I eat this handful of dark chocolate rosettes 😉

Join my on my journey to 21.1k (preferably sub 2) and getting back on track with my eating!

I hope to inspire you! (And I also could really use your support!) Please feel free to comment with any yummy smoothie recipes, training tips or questions and motivating thoughts!!

Much love to you all!! 🙂

Me and my Ego…

Me and my Ego.
As I write that I can hear the tune of ‘Me and my Shaaadow..’

Anyways…back to my Ego.

I have always struggled, for as long as I can remember, with less than stellar levels of self confidence and caring way too much about what other people think of me. I’m not sure why or where it all began, but I know that it is a pesky issue and it’s time for a change!

I just read this article over at Mind. Body. Green. (Awesome site, btw) and although it is short and sweet and slightly vague, it really resonated with me. The simplicity of it, and perhaps the superb timing, grabbed me and put my ego in it’s place.

 

what other people think

FYI 😉

 

I often hang out in a place of fear and worry.  And although I am quite free spirited and follow my heart (often without the help of my brain!), I get caught up in the ego of worrying what other people will say about me and the choices I make.  This often ends badly.  It ends with me second guessing my follow-my-heart attitude.  And that ends up with me not finishing what I started.  And then I feel terrible.  And so begins the mad cycle.

So.  Today I declare, out loud, on the web, publicly to you all!  No more!!  NO MORE! (sorry for shouting…)  It really is none of my business what other people think of me.  Good or bad, I have zero control over the opinions of others when it comes to me.  No matter what I do or say, they will make up their own minds based on their own experiences, mind set and attitude.

I hope you will join me in an effort to be free to be ourselves.  To not let the thoughts of others hold us back from what we are truly capable of!  You can do and be anything and everything you want to do and be!

We are beautiful souls all her together to support and love and be happy.

Much love to you all! 🙂
