I know me.
I know me better than anyone knows me.
I know what makes me tick and what motivates me.
I know that I am not ready for a half marathon. I'm not even ready to begin training for a half marathon. I've got to get a good, solid, running foundation back, before I try to climb that wall. So, today I am starting. I found a program that I think will work for me. It eases me back into everything at an incredibly slow pace...allowing my mind to catch up to the fact that I'm doing this again.
It starts out so slow, that I'm worried I'm going to grow bored of it. But...I'm going to trust it and follow it and stick it out.
I also know that I love inspirational quotes and for some reason they get into my head and stick there. I've printed up some quotes for each week (8 weeks total, for this program) and I'm putting them on the back of my tracker. I'll leave these on the treadmill while I run, as a reminder of why I'm doing what I'm doing. Perhaps they will even distract me a bit from the burning and pain. :)
My weeks will run Sunday-Saturday, so I will post either every Saturday or Sunday with my progress and I'll share the quotes that I used to push me, for that week. I have no idea if anyone even reads this little world of mine anymore, but being accountable to myself should be enough.
Because...in the end...it's only me that matters.
