Forgive me trail for I have sinned. it has been one week since my last running session. It’s 30 days to race time, and I’m so behind schedule. Trying to find time for a run this past week has been next to impossible, and I fear I will pay for my slacker behavior. Damn those three kids, weekly camps, job, and P.M.S.; a perfect storm of tired and I got sucked right into the eye. I’m not sure how a week slipped past and I only made it to the trail once. On the bright side, I did manage to get that chocolate bar I was complaining about last week.
Along with some advice I got on my last article, I’ve also been watching all the olympic prep this week, and twice in one week Quinoa (pronounced Kin-wa)was mentioned, so I’ve decided to throw it into my diet. It’s a grain containing amino acids, lysine, calcium, phosphorus and iron, and is closely related to the tumbleweed. And since I’ve been feeling a bit like a tumbleweed myself lately, this might just be the perfect food for me.
This week I’ve decided to kick it up a notch and make a running schedule and more importantly, stick to it. Maybe this way I’ll manage to run more than once a week. And since I’ve booked my flight to Oregon, there’s really no turning back.
So wish me luck in achieving my goals this week. Any motivational advice would always be appreciated.
