So I believe today marks 30 days out from my first half marathon, and I have to say, I may be in a funk with training. It's hard to believe because I really love running. I think I may be doubting myself that I can actually run 13.1, I am so tired lately and work is just hectic all the time now. I can't seem to relax ever! I didn't get to run at all this week because of Issac and all of this mixed up has me in a funk...
I ran 9 miles today to make up for missing my runs this week. All in all it was a good run, but around mile 6 or 7 my stomach knotted up and I had to take some walking breaks.... I was not happy. I had a good run going, running with Mindy from Road Runner Girl and then I had to walk, ugh, REALLY?!? Yep! It was so humid and nasty today too, mentally it was not a great run for me or a couple of ladies running with me. A few of us struggled at one point or another.
This too shall pass! And I am confident that I am going to kick butt in my race. But I must admit sometimes it's hard to see through the self doubt and my stressed mind!
This is good news for my loyal blog followers though! One great way to get me out of a funk is to treat myself with something new. I have been blessed lately with some great companies sending me their awesome products to use for my training, write a review and I get to pass this on to my readers. These companies have graciously allowed me to do giveaways too!
I have quite a few giveaways to do right now, so for the 1 month leading up to my first ever half marathon, I am going to have a weekly giveaway of the products I have been using to fuel my runs!! Free Swag time people!!!
Want a little hint? Stay on TOP of it, by checking back tomorrow, it is SUNDAE and the first giveaway will be going live!!
