I realized yesterday that I need to take some time to plan out my race calendar for the year. Of course, I have my favorite local races that I want to get in before they close out. But most importantly, I need to decide what marathon I’m going for. I’m feeling strong running wise but there’s a part of me that is holding back in fear.
What if I get injured again?
Can I really run that far?
I’m trying to think positively. I’ve run two half marathons since the injury and am logging more miles than ever without any pain. I’m being smart with fitting in cross training on my bike trainer and building strength. I need to concentrate on what I WANT to have happen, NOT what I’m afraid will. I want this marathon. I want it bad.But there’s still that little bit of doubt…
Deep breath. It’s time to do this! (I think).
Since it’s Wednesday, I’m linking up with Jenn again for WIAW.
I’m breaking the rules a bit today and going with some of my favorite foods I’ve been eating lately.
Last week when it was really cold, I was craving warm oatmeal for breakfast. It hit the spot but I was absolutely starving within 2 hours and could not get satisfied with no matter what I ate. While it tasted great, I prefer my green smoothie in the morning for satiety, even if it is -2 degrees outside!
Baked sweet potato, cinnamon and almond butter, apples, Spinach & Pear Muffins, Wild Harvest Pita Chips and hummus
I’m a creature of habit – sweet potatoes and almond butter are my jam! Wild Harvest recently sent me their new Pita Chips. Those poor chips didn’t have a chance in our house! The cinnamon sugar is really good!
I can’t get enough of eggs and salsa right now. I haven’t had eggplant in forever so when I saw Heather’s Eggplant Caponata, I knew I had to make it. It’s really good. Plus, it makes your house smell wonderfully delicious! I’m also on a cauliflower crust kick. I modified the above recipe slightly (less cheese) and it came out great. I can’t wait to experiment more with different seasonings.
Have a great Wednesday!
How do you conquer doubt?
