Well today I signed up again for the Genesis Running Program. The Spring Session starts next week. This time there is a Saturday morning session which makes it even better; I don’t have to rush right after work to get there, bonus! It has been a little hard to keep myself focused and motivated in my training solo. The folks who tell me they will go running with me have not been very reliable so it has been easy to talk myself out of going for a run. I did not get to sign up for the Disney half-marathon the day registration opened up the slots filled up quickly. I went to sign up a day after registration opened and it was already closed! 😦 I was disappointed and I think the wind was knocked out of my sails. So I have to find another half-marathon to train for in the fall. But anyway, I thought I would get back with the Genesis group for more support and I would be doing the graduate program which will help with my half-marathon goal; I can continue to cross train on the off days.
It is amazing how quickly you can fall out of training. I haven’t totally stopped it is just not as consistent as I would like it to be or needs to be. Now that I’ve paid a fee that will definitely help but more importantly the accountability of the group helps tremendously. It was this time last year that I actually started running so it is my running anniversary, why not celebrate it with the group that got me started! 🙂
