I'm having a hard time with where I am right now and where I want to be in life. Baby steps are much more my style, but sometimes I just feel the need to leap. But leaping is risky and scary and you could get hurt.
Alas, with all the stress I've been putting on myself and marathon training, I'm feeling exhausted. I guess I finally feel like I'm marathon training! Having a plan helps with that too.
As for training, I tweeted last night how the rain and gusts of 35 mph winds weren't exactly making outdoor running easy. Instead of joining our speed group like I usually do on Thursday evenings, I opted to head to the gym to do my speed work on the treadmill.
Before: Still debating whether or not to run outside
After: Very happy to have stayed inside, although it always feels much harder to run fast on a treadmill than it is outside. I was doing some 5k pace at 8.2 mph and it felt like I was nearly going to fly off the treadmill.
I'm working a half day today and then hanging out with my mom. Looking forward to it, although I wish this downpour would let up a bit.
Weeks to Eugene Marathon: 4! This weekend I'm dropping down and doing a 13 miler or so and hoping to feel refreshed come Monday.
Oh and I almost forgot a song I wanted to share with you guys! I heard this on Pandora last night on the Amos Lee channel. For some reason, I just love sad songs.

Hope everyone is having a Fabulous Friday so far!
