July Goals

With only 2 weeks left until my first 15k run, I'm eager to start training for my first marathon. I spend weeks in search of the right training schedule for my pace. I even arrange all future running events to meet that schedule. I'm so happy my best friend, Jarrah, is joining me along for the ride. But until then, let's plan for July.

More rest.
I fall asleep with my phone in one hand and the tv on. Need to just shut everything off and let my body fall asleep.

Cross train twice a week.
I get caught up trying to hit my goal running pace that I neglect the rest of my body. Need to hit the gym and incorporate upper body strength workouts. 

I put on my iPod and I hate having to adjust it when a slow song comes on. Need to create a fun, upbeat playlist.

It's easy to give up and I will admit to that. I need cut up on "walking breaks."

At the end of the day I need to remember that running should be fun. I can't get to caught up with trying too be the best everyday. 
Wish me luck!
