Yes that is right. I have a race in two weeks and I have not taken the first step to train until today. The American 4 Miler is creeping up fast and I still feel not so prepared as I have in my previous races.
So this afternoon, I grabbed my gym clothes out of my bag and headed to the gym at my office and hopped on the treadmill for what I feared was going to be the longest 4 miles of my life.
One thing I have learned is that it is not how many times you are active, it is the fact that you ARE active. That is the most important thing. I am not a patient person and I would give anything to get rid of my gut and show some type of definition in my abs but I know with clean eating and hard training, I will get there someday.
As for my run, I never felt more alive after a run. I ate some spicy honey chicken I made during my meal prep on Sunday that was not a good idea. I felt sorry for the people running beside me as I was passing some serious gas. I feel confident that this race will not be a problem as long as I stick to training hard.
That is all for this week
