Note to self

Must always keep this in mind. Keep eye on the goal, but do the work to get there.There are so many "how to run a *fill in the blank* in x amount of weeks" articles out there, I know I sometimes forget the actual miles that need to be run to get you there. Training officially begins in 6 days!! Been walking and spinning a lot getting me ready though!

Can't for the life of me figure out how to put this on my actual blog page

Maybe that is a sign I should NOT be twittering... Anyhow, I am attempting it.  Mostly so I can practice before really getting into it with the Down syndrome group (I maintain the FB page for us, and want to start twitter, but need to work out some kinks I think...)

Here is the Lowcountry Down Syndrome Society (LDSS)'s Twitter page though, you can help me maybe, lol?

Getting the mojo back- TWO exciting things today!!

So I've been in a huge slump lately... minimal workouts, eating horribly, the whole deal. Feeling sorry for myself, etc. etc. BUT in the past couple weeks, I've been feeling more and more like the old me. Eating a bit better (need to do a LOT better, but eh...), back to the gym, etc.  Still not really running though. Some huge mental block going on... until today (no I didn't actually run, ha ha).


Got an email this afternoon telling me it was time to start training for the R and R half... Wait, WHAT? I am not behind?? You mean the beginner program actually doesn't start until July 3rd (18 weeks)?? SIGN. ME. UP.!! Bought their training program. 4 days a week, starts super easy, PERFECT.


Then a few hours later I got an e-mail from the Lowcountry Down syndrome Society (our local group) -- we are going to be an OFFICIAL CHARITY FOR THE MARATHON!!!

What better motivation do I need than to run for my own SON!!!

More details to follow for my local friends who might want to run with us! YAAAAY!!

Spin class in the am :D

I am still alive

But it was touch and go for a while. Hurt my back right after coming back from hurting my pirformis, and just had to take a break. I am *this* close to being back to my blogging, working out self.  Took spin yesterday, finally. Will have more in the coming week I promise...
