64 Days Until Race Day

I have a number of excuses, not all great, for why I have slacked off on training this week, including:

  • Heavy rain
  • A change in schedule/routine
  • Poor time management
  • Eating too much fried catfish
  • Eating too much in general
Today, it was a combination of poor time management and eating too much fried catfish. Yesterday, it was the heavy rain and poor time management. I think this puts me a total of three workouts behind. I think the change of race date has led me to be comfortable taking it a little easier or making excuses. 

To my credit, I did get out tonight after dinner to try to do 5-6 easy miles. I felt weighed down with everything I have eaten over the past few days, especially the pile of fried catfish I ate at dinner tonight. I have no regrets, but I decided to call it early tonight. So, I did 2.66 miles. Usually I fight through the "I'm not having fun" or "I have not been treating my body like a temple lately" feelings, but today I caved.

I could say that cutting my workout shot is no way to start 2021 out strong, but instead, I'm going to celebrate that I went out at all. Boom.

Something that made today great: Cooking New Year's food for lunch with Rebecca
Time I woke up: 7:30 am...but then went back to sleep until about noon.
