Welcome to Week 10 of the 12-Week Sprint to the Finish! The end is in sight. This is the place where it’s easy to get discouraged.
Maybe you can see the finish, but you’re getting tired. Maybe you can already tell that you aren’t going to reach the goal that you said for yourself.
Or maybe your goal is in reach.
Wherever you fall on the spectrum, this is the time to finish strong.
Run. Walk. Crawl. Finish!
It doesn’t matter how you cross the finish line, as long as you cross it, but it’s always more run to finish strong.
Maybe, like me, you’re likely going to fall a bit short of your goal. That’s okay. You can wrap up the next couple of weeks closer than you are today. Just don’t quit so close to the end.
Maybe, you’re going to blow your goals out of the water. Great! We’ll be here to cheer you on.
So, what’s it going to be? What are you goals for the next week of the 12-Week Sprint to the Finish?
Yesterday, I complete a big part of my goal. I ran my first 9-mile long run! I can’t even begin to tell you how bad I did NOT want to run it. As I told a friend, I knew I could do it, so there was no excited anticipation of wondering if I could, just a dread of a hot, sweaty, long run.
I did it, though, and I was proud of myself for not talking myself out of it. Not only did I do it, but the run wasn’t as miserable as I thought it would be and I finished it just under the time I had set for myself.
My goals for this week are to continue my running training plan, do at least two days of strength training, and continue to log my food in My Fitness Pal, thought I may eat a few more calories than it allows. Maybe. I’m just going to see how it goes.
No food log again this week. I’m typing this at nearly 11:00 on Sunday night and I’m tired.
What about you? What are your goals?
Do or do not. There is no try.
