A better frame of mind

Okay, after that earlier post, I spent the day making a plan. I now have a plan in place, a start date - tomorrow, and the right frame of mind to do it.

I have a tendency towards inertia. When things start to get tough or stressful I lose the ability to do anything. If I have a ton of things to do I find it impossible to get off the couch. That's kind of what was happening with this whole heel thing. I had a plan to start my marathon training like now. Because of the heel I can't. I started towards inertia thinking of the 2 marathons at the end of the year. ARRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!

But I came up with a plan. I'm going to do weights and intervals. I know intervals help with my running and weights definitely do - stronger legs = better running. I also have revamped my eating plan a little. I had drifted towards too much processed stuff. I'm going back to more whole foods and eating more often. I had gotten to the point where I was going 5+ hours between breakfast and lunch. That's too long for me.

Anyway, I feel the inertia lifting. I have a plan and the right frame of mind to do it in. Yea Me!!!
