Regarding: Moving

Moving on, that is.  There is something you can learn from every race.  And especially the ones where goals were not met.  And then there is obsessing.

So I will go through (quickly) what I learned and then I am moving on.

1.  Get up earlier to allow time for the coffee to move on through, thus eliminating (get it, hahaha) the need for a porta-potty stop

2. Add in more speedwork and tempo run to learn how to run at different paces

3.  Set more realistic goals

I struggle with the last one.  I think stretch goals are good.  But there needs to be some touch of reality as well.  Not meeting some goals will push me to work harder.  Not meeting ANY goals could eventually become a reason to quit.

Next (scheduled ) race…Arizona Half Marathon Feb 25th.


About nfoste2245

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
