For the last couple of days I have been whining and complaining because I’ve been too tired and lazy to resume my marathon training for the Hartford Marathon on October 15.  I was feeling sorry for myself that I even thought of changing my registration from the full marathon to a half marathon.  Well, luckily my friends motivated and encouraged me to snap out of it and not to make a rash decision right away.  Instead, I should just wait and see how I feel as it gets closer to the date.

Well, the first thing I had to go was lace up those shoes and go out for a run.  That is what I did this morning.  Believe it or not but it was tough to get up this morning, change into running gear, and put on those shoes.  I managed to do it and complained just a little bit.  I kept telling myself to be quiet and to stop whining.  🙂  My plan was to run 4 miles.  My last run was 5 miles on June 25th.  It was tough to run 4 miles.  I took more breaks than I normally do.  That is OK though.  What is important is that I ran 4 miles.

By the way, how I missed my running shoes.  I cannot believe I neglected them for over a month!!!  Never again!!!  I will see them again tomorrow, the next day, and the next day, and from now on every day till I cross that finish line in Hartford on October 15.
