I am still fighting my way through this. Despite what my room mate is doing. Or rather, what I'm letting him do to me...

I know that I need to keep putting me first through this. I need to focus on my training.
I lost a week. Being sick and all. Not a big deal. I think I had an extra week or so to spare anyway. I will double check with the calendar to be sure. If not, then I'll just cut my HM training back by a week. Not a biggie. It's just kind of a warm up to the marathon program for me anyway.
I did get out and try to run yesterday. I just wasn't able to. The wind was pushing me back (it was an 80K wind). Between that and just not being very strong yet - I'm still weak from this stupid cold - I decided to cut it short. I did run out, and walk back. Covered just under 3miles. Burned 300 calories. So in my books, that counts as a win.
Okay, so I don't do the weights yet. But I know I need to do something. I need to do crunches. And some strength training too. It'll all help. I just feel so drained.
It's all a choice. I am choosing what to do. And I guess I need to take baby steps to add the next ones too. I need to add some abdominal toning. Maybe I will add 10 crunches a day to start with. That's not such an impossible task. 10 crunches a day for at least 3 days this week. And stretching. 10minutes after every run. That's important too.
Yes, I know. Bad runner. Running and never really stretching. I am lucky I haven't been injured yet. I get it. But I don't need to temp fate. I need to fix it.
It's all up to me. The decisions I make. No matter what I do. No matter what decision I make. Or if I just don't make a decision at all. It's all on MY shoulders. And the clock will just keep on ticking by. If I want to reach my goals tomorrow, I need to take action TODAY. NOW!!!
