Okay - so now that I am back from vacation and back from my 3 day wedding weekend extravaganza - it's time to get serious. (BTW - I survived the weekend - barely - but I survived and it's back to the office for me!)
Have you ever bit of more than you could chew? I think I may have done just that. A while ago, I agreed to run the USMC Mud Run with my hubby and another couple. Before you say, "What the HECK were you thinking!?!" - let me explain. At the time, I was working with a personal trainer twice a week and training for a half marathon. A mud run of about five miles seemed like cake. Now - almost nine months later, I'm asking myself What the HECK were you thinking!?!?!
The run is in September and if I don't do some serious training over the next three months - there is no way on earth I will be able to finish. I have been instructed that tears just aren't allowed. Steven and Jim don't care if they have to drag me across the finish line - but under no circumstances am I allowed to cry. (Do they know me? Really - since when do I have control over my overactive tear ducts!?!?!)
Anywho - so I'm beginning my morning runs again. I feel as though the only shot I have at completing this is to get my half marathon stamina back. I am also going to start the 30 Day Shred to build some upper body and core strength - but I know that endurance is what will ultimately get me through.
So I'm calling all bloggers - I need a good running mix. You know songs with a great beats that will keep me pounding the pavement with excitement. What do you suggest??
