Marathon Motivation Monday - Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger

Well friends, Week 1 of Marathon Training is in the books. Lessons were learned and training schedules have been tweaked. In other words, the fun has just begun. In case you missed it, I posted a video update about my progress ( *you can expect regular video updates on my brand spanking new YouTube Channel - Darwinian Fail, so come on over and subscribe! You can also hear my 8 year old voice in all it's glory - and yes that is what I really sound like...*)

I spent the week training and learning, but Confession: I spent the weekend enjoying. We went back to our old stomping grounds in Kingston, ON for the night. It is where my husband and I did our undergrad and our little love story began (*insert collective chorus of "Awww!"*). We went back for the weekend to visit amazing friends and their brand new baby. The weekend was spent laughing, eating, drinking, chatting, and enjoying baby snuggles. It was the perfect weekend, spent with some of my favourite people. But training was not exactly high on my agenda.

As lovely as this weekend was, and as refreshed as I now feel - too many weekends spent like this and I will have to roll across the Marathon Finish Line. I knew the lure of this weekend would be too hard to resist though, so I gave myself a free pass for food and fun. And boy, did I make the most of it!

But it is back to reality and business as usual. I've got 15 weeks to push this body to the limit and really see what I am made of. So this weeks theme is...
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger!

I am going to train Harder
I am going eat Better
I am going to run Faster
And I am going to get Stronger

Let's do this people!
