I can't seem to find or make time to run and do yoga these days. Before Will and I got serious, I always managed to do yoga 2 times a week and run 2-3 times a week, even when things were at their busiest. The summer before we met, I was running waaaaaay more than that. But my whole life got shaken up when I fell in love, and I haven't gotten back on track. I really want to run the Bolder Boulder this year, and I know I can make it into one of the qualifying waves, but that means running a qualifying race...
Hold the presses! I just had a sudden flash of inspiration, because I had forgotten that the 10k I did last spring was NOT the last race I ran (that was too long ago to count as a qualifying race). I took a little break from bitching, and found the results for the race I ran in July. This whole sitting-on-my-ass thing has gone on way too long -- I can't believe I haven't run a race in almost 9 months. But that race will indeed count, and I did indeed qualify, for an even faster wave than I thought I would, despite the fact that I ran that race with no training and my time was way slower than the year prior.
So, I guess I'm running the Bolder Boulder! Yay! Now I'm feeling more excited than frustrated. Good thing I have a blog or I might never have gotten it all worked out. I was starting to worry that I would need spanx to fit into my wedding dress.
But I'm also back to the original problem: how to make time for training? I need a plan. I'll talk to Will about it tomorrow, then post here so I'll be accountable to everyone in the whole entire world.
