I was consistent for ONE WEEK! (That's a bigger deal than it seems, people!)
I was supposed to do 5 miles yesterday for my "long run" as I start over with this serious and consistent training plan. I didn't. Instead, I got up at 6:30am, ate a bunch of leftover sushi from the fridge, and went back to bed until 10am. After that, we had a bar mitzvah to decorate and that took most of the remainder of the day. By the time we got home at 7pm, I was toast and kicking myself for being such a lazy whore earlier in the morning.
Today, I once again got up early, ate something, and went back to bed. ::frownie face:: In my defense, the kids are at my ex's this weekend and I just don't get the opportunity to got back to bed, like... EVER. We had an Oscars event this afternoon but I had time most of the day to run. And just didn't.
But, this story has a happy ending! As I sat on the couch at 5pm, eating saltines and feeling pretty annoyed with myself, I actually got up and went toward the treadmill. And I got on it and did intervals for 2.5 miles and then walked faster than my run for negative splits on the other 2.5 miles.
So HOORAY! I am SO not good at motivating myself, but I can now say I am one week into a serious training program. Tomorrow, I add swimming! (Hopefully)
