From time to time, I’ll log into Google Analytics and check out the search terms that lead people to my blog. I get curious and it definitely never fails to amuse me. I thought I’d share some with you that had me laughing to myself the other night.
“why does my dog want my Vega bar” -> probably because it tastes delicious
“naked women from Maine” -> ummm you won’t find that on here…sorry
“hot mom in Lululemon” -> don’t think you’ll find that here either
“inside of pita bread soggy” -> how unfortunate
“can you rotate Mizuno wave inspire with Mizuno wave sayonara” -> for me, the answer is yes
“are Quest bars addictive” -> the answer is also yes
“compression unitard” -> I think we can all use one of those after long runs, hey?
“naked workout” -> can’t say I’ve tried that before
“having ice cream night before long run” -> guilty
“weird things in the world” -> this blog is probably one of them
Now for a training update….
To be honest, I don’t really feel great right now. There are less than 8 weeks left until my marathon and my mind cannot even fathom the idea of running 26.2 miles. I just ran 15 on Sunday and although I felt okay physically, my mind was all over the place. I am stopping WAY more than I should during my runs for absolutely no reason. My mind is completely controlling my body and the worst part is – I’m letting it. I’m telling myself that I can’t do things that I KNOW I can do. Even my tempo run yesterday felt like a flop. I only ran 10K instead of the 15K that I was supposed to do and although my average was decent (7:55), I took more breaks than I care to admit. I know I don’t need these breaks. My recent half marathon is proof that I can run at a fast (for me) pace for 13.1 miles. So why can’t I do it when I’m not racing?
I need to get my mind right or this marathon is not happening. I’ve had way too many doubts lately and haven’t been feeling like my normal self since returning from Vancouver. SEND HELP. Maybe I just need to eat some ice cream and get myself a compression unitard.
P.S. Princeton got a haircut and today is National Dog Day so here you go:
