Yesterday after my long drive back home from Wisconsin, I set out for my 4 mile long run. Without sugar-coating it, it was a rough one! I think a lack of sleep and the festivities from Saturday night during Maddie’s bachelorette party had a lot to do with that. But despite feeling a bit sluggish, I powered through and made it. Whenever I am training for a race, I keep my goal in mind. In my mind, I have already completed this marathon over and over, so I keep reminding myself of that feeling and how accomplished I will feel when I cross that finish line. It sounds silly, but it works! I am looking forward to some great runs this week to make up for it!
My weekend in Wisconsin was a lot of fun and it was great to celebrate with the bride-to-be!
Today was the beginning of a crazy-busy week, which is good since it is my first week without Dan here! I’m glad I will be kept busy so I can keep my mind off of missing him.
