Marathon Training Thursday - Aphrodite

Whew. It is August! Month 1 of Marathon Training is complete. How crazy is that? I only have 10 weeks until Race Day, so it is time to really buckle down and get serious.

This past month has been one big learning curve. And I still feel like I am trying to strike that elusive balance. I am still searching for my happy pace, trying to figure out my nutrition, and working on my confidence.

And there is nothing like a good old fashion pop song to help bring out your inner running goddess on those early AM runs, right? So this week I am going to channel the power of Aphrodite and rock it out!


It's a truth. It's a fact. I was gone and now I'm back.
Running while still recovering has been a struggle. And I will admit that there is a slight possibility that I jumped back into training a little bit too soon. Running is something I do because I genuinely LOVE it. And I spend most runs beaming like a goofball, but rebuilding my mileage has been difficult and I haven't exactly been enjoying it. But I know that I have made a lot of progress in the past few months. I was gone and now I'm back! Yeah! 

I got soul, you can check. In my heart, in my head. I got spirit you can feel.
Training is all about finding my fight and that drive. Because let's be honest, I am not exactly genetically blessed. So if I am going to rock this Marathon then it is going to be all about the training. So let's do this! Let's see what this body can do if I really push it.

Oh, I'm fierce and I'm feeling mighty. I'm a golden girl. I'm an Aphrodite.
I have said this before and I will say it again - when I am running I feel like a total Bad Ass! My little inner diva comes out. Each mile I knock out makes me feel fierce, strong, powerful, and unstoppable. I am channeling my running goddess and rocking my Marathon Training this month.

I'm fierce and I'm feeling mighty. Don't you mess with me you don't wanna fight me. Alright.
So that is a warning Genetics. I run this body. So you better just sit back and enjoy the ride this time around, because I am about seriously whip you into shape. Genetics may have been giving me the run around lately, but that time is OVER! It's time for me to run genetics.

Let's Do This!
