Staying motivated can be difficult to maintain. For some, “getting” motivated may be a difficult task. I like to set goals, and then set out on the attack. Pacing my attack is my challenge. I have to be careful not to set the hurdles too high for myself. I don’t want to set unrealistic, unachievable goals for myself.
I *have* asked the question of whether I am capable of qualifying to run in the Boston Marathon. For those of you who have attempted this task, you know that it is not easy. It is not something that everyone can easily achieve. I have run 10 marathons so far and my best is 3:55 – that is 5 minutes slow of my current BQ time. Although, I have asked the question, I still answer that I can do it.
Hence the plan:
· Hal Higdon’s Intermediate I program
· Run the sorta-long runs at Tempo pace, Yasso 800s, or Mile repeats.
· Lose weight
