100 Days

100 Days until Hardrock 100.  My dream race.

Lots of thoughts swirling around my head, but no real cohesive thoughts.  I have vacillated through this cycle so many times this winter, from bleak doubts to the opposite, happy positive outcome.  I'm sure I will go through this many more times this spring.

I added the countdown counter in order to keep this Run in the forefront of my thoughts. It's time to make sure there is purpose to every workout.  It's time to formulate the loose plan for the week, tweak it as necessary, but work toward that goal-to be in the best possible shape I can be in by July 12.

I have a long way to go to get there.  I need to clean up my eating, that has definitely been slacking.  By cleaning up my eating, that will also help me lose 10 lbs by July 1.

The next 99 days is going to involve a lot of this. Balance.

 Balance workouts, work, and my family life in the right amounts. Work allows me to have the lifestyle that I have; can't have my life without my family; workouts keeps me...

 Workouts keeps me...complete? Sane? Happy? Running does all this for me. I get a release when I run. I am, like many many runners, Type A and a bit on the OCD side. Running relaxes me. I truly love being in the outdoors. I love covering ground and seeing sights and new sights. I like climbing up hills to see what's on the other side and bombing down trails.

So, onto the "to do" list I have started with my 4 day weekend, I can add another line:  Workout schedules for the week.  Make them all count. Only 99 days to go.
