I am now entering into week 5 of training, and just about ready to throw in the towel. I told my brother -who has completed two half-marathons to date- that I used to be tired all the time. But now, thankfully, I only feel tired and sore all the time.
Today, right after I got home from work, I mustered up just enough energy to climb up the stairs, change into my pajamas, and fall on my bed. I woke up from my restless nap just in time to find out that I missed the monthly all-church prayer. Bah.
The half-marathon will take place at the end of October this year. Just FYI in case you stop hearing from me after that. You'll know why.
I do have to admit, however, that I have been feeling extremely good despite the aches from my long runs. The production of endorphins probably has a lot to do with it, but I am also thankful that I am already getting to experience the value of hard work and discipline. Clichéd, but pretty darn true.
