"If you want to become the best runner you can be, start now. Don't spend the rest of your life wondering if you can do it." --Priscilla Welch, who won the 1987 New York City Marathon at age 42
OK, Loving that quote.
I think what makes it so profound is that you can take the word "runner" out and plug in any big goal or dream you have and it's totally relevant.
But for now, I'm keeping runner in there...
And Priscilla won the NYC marathon at the age of 42 - go on with your bad self.
Anyway, I read this great article today it can be found here: Tips to get you motivated to run -- number 1 tip was "start a running blog." :) I'm bookmarking this page for those days I just want to skip training. I guarantee that you can't get thru ten of them without finding at least a little motivation! There was some really great advice so if you are serious about running, definitely check it out.
This was a good one too: five ways to break through road blocks -- ahhh where were these articles the other day when I really needed them!
So, my three mile run yesterday made me a little sore because since I cockily was thinking to myself, "pfff, this is only 3 miles," I decided to do a lot of speed work (well speed work for me - which is probably normal running for others.. lol) and I really pushed to run fast and do sprints. I think I'm going to stick to the eliptical or bike the rest of the week - maybe a little power walking but no running. I want to feel 100% for race day. Can't wait!
