Do you ever wonder where your Limits came from?
I cant run that fast
I could never qualify for Boston
I cant run a Mile
I can run a 5K
I cant run a Half Marathon
I cant run a Marathon
I cant do a Triathlon (oops that is me)
and on and on...
There are Limits to what the body can do, that is a fact. But, there is a difference between the Limits of your body, and those imprinted by your Mind.
- Side Note: When I was in 5th grade I picked up a Basketball for the first time. I found that my height helped me to get that round orange ball int he hoop. My parents gave me all the tools I needed to be successful. But is was my personal belief in myself that made me successful. At 6th grade I set a goal to earn a College Scholarship and play Division I Basketball. That was my goal and I achieved it!! My Belief in myself extended my skills far beyond any Limits I may have had, poor footwork, bad memory for plays, barely there vertical, a little too short to be a post, etc.
I ran a Half Marathon
I ran a Marathon
I qualified for Boston
.....because I believed that I could, no Limits!!! Make a plan and start today, the first step is often the hardest. What Goal are you holding back from because you are afraid of failure? Bust through those self-imposed Limits and reach your potential!!!
- BOSTON GOALS:
As my training progressed I gained the mental and physical strength to BELIEVE in ME again. At the end of the 26.2 Victory lap I need to know that I have given it everything I could, while enjoying the ride.. Here are my Goals, which change by the minute :) Will see what this Tall Body has to give on 4/18!!!
Perfect Day Goal- Sub 3:40, if I can find the Zone I think I could qualify for Boston in Boston. I did not put in adequate Speed Work or Hill training to shoot for a PR or a BQ, but you never know what race day will bring.
Goal I have trained for- 3:45, with my training I believe that I can get around a 3:45, which would be my second best Marathon time ever and a GREAT accomplishment.
Smile at the Finish Goal- 3:59:59, having FUN along the way and getting my second every sub 4 hour Marathon. I plan to take a break from Marathons for a bit after Boston so I would like to end with a Sub 4 hour.
There you have it... cant wait to see what Race Day brings, these legs are ready to RUN...
