Oooh…did you catch that? Marathon training. I know; I’ve been, um, missing in action. Not really. What really happened is that I got a job…and ten extra pounds… But that’s all good. I tried to gain an extra five pounds this summer, but I’ve already lost that. What’s my solution to working off calories now that I sit most of the day with the new gig? Sign up for a marathon.
I’d like to take this opportunity to blame a few people. Yes, I’m calling you out, Chris Stanley, Barbara Stanley, Jennifer Bland, Crystal Walsh, Ruthie Kinker. That’s not really fair, is it? I know that I make my own choices.
Onto injuries. They are SO ANNOYING! I keep pulling the same muscle. It comes out of nowhere and it benches me for a week. I just took two weeks off of running because I was on vacation and a pile of other excuses. You would have thought that I was nice and rested and could have run without a problem, but nooooo. Pulled that calf muscle AGAIN and I’m limping and stiff and my dad called me ‘old’.
Enough whining. I’m no quitter. It’s time to nurse this baby and get myself back on track. I have a marathon to run in a few months and I will succeed! Until then, I might have to invest in some Biofreeze and The Stick.
