April Fools Day

I feel like the joke is on me when I changed the miles for this month from 65.5 to 0. I am mad that I only ran 65 for this month and am pissed that I failed to reach my 100 mile goal every month and pissed that I didn't meet my first goal of 80 something a month to reach my 1,000 by the end of the year. I know I was injured and I am being hard on myself, but I am still disapointed and I can't just hide that. Oh well. I have 8 months to make up for my poor performance this month and I have some half marathons coming up that I think I might be give the ok to run! So Happy thoughts on this friday.


  1. I wish I would have read this before I text you!!! :(

    Melissa, I know you, and I know you well. I know that as soon as you start your running you will catch up.

    It will give you more of a challenge because you were doing 80 miles easy. Now you just have to up the anti!!!

    I know you will beat yourself up (and thats okay) but you are one of the most determined people I know and you will make and most likely surpass any goal you set.

    What fun would it be of getting to your goal with no struggle. That would just be "easy"!


  2. This was in my fortune cookie: "They can because they think they can." You can if you think you can! I know it's hard not to beat yourself up and be pissed about an injury. I've been there. But the best thing you can do is listen to your body and back off if needed. Better to back off a little now, than risk further injury and be out for months or more. Think about how strong and flexible your hips are going to be! There will be no stopping them!
