I know I can do it

The run on the plan for today was a 10 miler. (it was also on the plan last week, but it didn't happen)

I did it, and survived. I felt pretty good through most of it too. After 8 miles I got bored and was ready to go home and see Matt, who was gone the night before and came home mid run.

So the beginning of the year I made all these goals for 2011.

I wanted to run another half, a 10k , PR in a 5k, run 1000 miles for the year and possibly do a full.

Then I went and applied to grad school and got accepted.

So, after the Cherry Blossom 10 miler, running is getting back burnered. (is that a word?)

Until I know how much work I am going to be doing on the weekends, I just can't justify spending money on a race when I don't know that I will be able to give my all in training.

My first class starts the Monday after my race. I still plan to run, just not for 2 hours on a Sunday (like today)

Maybe after a few classes I can figure out how to work it all back in, if not , I hope that running is a nice break from the books for me.

After I get my 2 degrees, I plan to train for and run the Disney Princess half marathon. So look for that in a few years. :-D

I will keep this blog and when I run or find something worth posting I will post it up. I will keep reading everyone else's blogs too.

  1. Good luck Angela on whatever you plan. 2 Degrees is such a huge investment on time. I know you can do it. I also am so glad you got your 10 mile run in. I know I don't comment very often but I do stop by to check in. Last week I ran my first 5K on the treadmill. And to think I remember not a full year ago I was complaining to you about pole to pole and you telling me I can do it. Thank you for the love and support you gave me. I am still getting the magazine you also gave me for my birthday. I use the recipes in it often.
    Take care Angela and good luck with you studies. God Bless!!!
