Dont Drive past- Just showup

Image
I work out in the evening, not a morning person at all. Yesterday like all days I got my gym clothes in the car and planned to do the usual, until of course I realized I will be delayed at work. So somewhere during the course of the last meeting I decided I will skip the gym. And then I did what I didn’t imagine I could have done. I did not drive past the gym, I actually went. I checked my watch and it was 8:20pm. I still had a voice in my head asking me to just get back in the car and drive home, because it was way too late. But I locked the car and walked inside, with some surprised looks in the gym reception. My trainer was equally surprised and commented “so late, I didn’t think you would come in” I smiled and just blamed work and Bangalore traffic.
I surprised myself by killing all the voices in my head and then I heard Jillian in my head saying “What really matters is that you showed up”. For those who read my blogs, know that I absolutely love Jillian Michael’s workout and all …

This years running and the injury

The year has been a roller coaster ride for my  running . I started the year planning to get on the running wagon completely with planning out my race calendar for the year. I may have gotten ambitious by deciding on the Boston qualifier as well. It doesn't cost much to dream, does it.
Well officially I still have a shot as the Spice Coast Marathon is scheduled this Sunday.  But the truth of the matter is, let alone 42 Km I cant run a mile with a ankle injury. So all my dreams of BQ are down the drain.
I hurt my ankle in my practice runs post Bangalore marathon. Lesson learnt that I need to run more often and trying to achieve too much in a short time is not possible. Also running in the dark may not be the best time to run.

To be honest, even if the injury wasn't there , I had no chances of getting to my target time, cause I haven't been practicing. why I haven't, well I don't want to spend the whole blog whining so may be another time.
This is what the plan loo…
