Weary Wednesday: Don’t Give Up!

Blindman Trail Marathon Training – Week 6/12 – Day 3…6 Miles…

Hi all. Once i’d dragged myself out of bed i saw the sun blitzing through the windows, i checked my weather app to see how cold it was outside so i could choose my layers…The app said exactly what i was thinking as i thought about walking for 6 miles in the blinding sun! 😨

After the fallen tree drama yesterday i was happy to find it gone this morning, yay. But for some reason my legs and energy levels were just not happening and i almost gave up half way round, but realised i still have to get home and i’m miles away, lol…So i gave it as much as i could to make it back home! 😰

In the middle of fighting myself not to give up i took this photo of the stew pond to remind me it really is lovely around here. 😲

I can’t believe it’s week 6 of my 12 week marathon training plan already, and i’m really looking forwards to next week’s ‘Down Week’ where i only have to do 50% of the miles. This will give my legs some much needed rest but also use less mileage on my stupendous new INOV8 Terraultra trail shoes…I’ve put 40 miles on them already! 😨 Can you believe there is only 60 days to go until my trail marathon!! 😱

Let’s ‘FitBlitz’ 2022 together!! 💪🏼

  1. Glad that you did not give up, Steve! It is the small decisions we make that determine the outcome. You are not only training for the marathon but for great life skills of not quitting. Keep it up!

    “I saw something else under the sun: The race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; neither is the bread to the wise, nor the wealth to the intelligent, nor the favor to the skillful. For time and chance happen to all.” Ecclesiastes 9:11 Berean Study Bible
