Thursday’s are for thinking out loud!
Here are some thoughts that are on my mind this week!
The Boston Marathon is on Monday… holy S%$#!
After lots of ups and downs with training this winter, I am ready to go for Monday and I am feeling good! I always knew I would run this year, I just hoped that when it came to April 21st that my body would be ready. I am happy to say that it feels like it is ready and hopefully has what it takes to overcome 26.2 miles.
Sometimes I think I don’t get enough sleep. Actually a lot of times.
I have always been one of those people that doesn’t require a lot of sleep. I can stay up late and wake up early, no problem. I typically get on average 6-6.5 hours of sleep during the work week, and I tend to function well with this amount of sleep. Often I wake at 5:00 AM to get my morning training session done, and I’m going to be at 10:30/11:00 PM every night. I know getting more sleep would most likely benefit me and my performance, but it’s so hard to fit everything in! If anyone has ideas on how to get more sleep as a triathlete, please share!
I gave up Facebook for Lent.
And it’s not the first time I’ve done this. I am not super religious, but I was raised Catholic and I always like to give something up for Lent. Giving up Facebook these last few years has really benefited my soul. I found that whenever I was on Facebook, I started to get feelings of jealousy, felt sorry for myself, compared myself to others, and worried about people whom I don’t even associate with anymore. I plan to go back to Facebook after Easter, but hopefully in ‘small doses’ Giving it up was really hard at first (for like a week) but now I don’t even miss it!
I need new spring clothes.
Well to be honest, I probably don’t need new clothes, I just really want them! I have always been a girl who loves to shop! I really want to go through my closet and do a wardrobe overhaul. Now I just need the money to go on a shopping spree… 🙂
