You Can Do Anything You Want….

Within reason…..No one ever tells you the second part of that statement.  Amirite?

I’m not lamenting or anything..just stating the obvious.  Basically what it amounts to is that although I don’t technically consider myself a full fledged adult – I have these moments where I must act like one and make the tough decisions.

I’m not going to get into the specifics of my tough decisions because that’d bore you and I don’t need to bore you any more than I already do :-)….

You said it Spongebob

What I’m getting at is my decision about the rest of this week and/or weekend.  Although I have started training for my Marathon (in October, mind you)….I have decided to run a Half Marathon this weekend.  When I usually run these, the week before is a taper week.  I haven’t started doing this.  Yesterday I ran 4 short miles and felt pretty good.  I always get anxious when I run short distances; like it’s not enough for some reason.  Anyone else?

I haven’t thought of a game plan for this Half on Sunday.  I was just knew I needed to get mileage.

This got me to thinking – as I am sure many others have this issue – I realize I can’t PR every race I do…but I haven’t run a Half in nearly two years and would like to improve on my time.  That being said – I think today will be my last run of the week until Sunday.  If I can keep my pace I kept for BSR, I’ll PR my half by more than 5 minutes.  I’d be SUPER pumped!  Here’s hoping!

Another adult decision….that I just don’t feel like dealing with…is figuring out what to do with my life…..

OH, I KNOW…woe is me, blah blah blah – Suck it up, Katie.  Yeah.   I am.  Trust me.  It’s just not as much fun as making living room forts…..remember those?

But Katie, you’re saying, ‘you can do anything you want’ – you have that luxury.  You are an adult and that means you’re old enough to make decisions and choose a path.  NOT IF I REFUSE! 🙂

In truth – Life is pretty great right now.  I’m not even being one bit sarcastic.  My running is going well, my social life is starting to pick up – mainly because school is almost over, and summer is right around the corner!  Plus – my birthday is about a month away – awwww yeah 🙂

Today I have a 6 mile run to do and a bunch of errands.  The next three days (Fri, Sat, Sun) are insanely busy so I am trying to get everything done today.  Let’s do this!

We are so close to the weekend, I can taste it!

I love this  – I wish this was what my week’s looked like 🙂
