My goal is to not miss any workouts, sounds easy enough but with workouts happening so often it’s easy to miss one or two. For example last week we missed a swim workout because our dog kept us up most of the night and I just couldn’t get out of bed to swim after 4 hours of sleep and running 10 miles the night before. There really is no time for “make-ups” so if I miss a workout I just have to move on to the next one.
I just ordered Chrissie Wellington's book and I can't wait to get it!
I think reading this book will help keep me motivated in these last few weeks of training.
Read any inspirational books lately? One of my favorites is The Long Run by Matt Long.
