I was going to write a long detailed report about what went wrong for me, but I decided that it is time to move on. Suzie, I am sure you are happy to hear that.
So, no more eating chocolate frosting straight out of the can, no more Snickers for breakfast, and no more dwelling on a goal not reached.
My question to you wonderful, amazing ladies is what my next plan should be. I am at a loss of where to go now. Here are the choices and feel free to add your own ideas:
1. Run another marathon in the next couple of months and try again while I am still trained.
2. Take a break and pick a 10k or a half marathon to train for a PR and then try again in a year for the marathon.
3. Sign up for St. George with Sarah. (Which would mean only a 2 months break before starting to train again...)
The good news is I am already back running(slow!!), so I must not be too depressed. (That or I am just stubborn!) I lifted weights twice this week and I am looking forward to getting a Pilates routine from Windrunner. I also signed up for a 5 week boot camp at the Y to get my butt kicked by someone else!!
So, there you have it. Thanks, ladies, for all your inspiration and support.
