So next week I embark on the beginning of my marathon training. I am absolutely terrified. I'm afraid I won't train well enough, or that I'll injure myself. I think I am more terrified of the training itself than the actual marathon. I shouldn't be. I have researched different plans, tweaked mine until it felt comfortable to me, so the plan itself is more than doable.
So what scares me? I think it's more that I won't stay on track. My motivation levels have been very low lately, and I've running no more than once a week for the past few weeks. And forget cross training, if I can get myself to do that more than two times in a month, it's amazing. I've tried challenges, accountability partners, etc., but I can't keep myself motivated.
This is going to be the hardest training plan so far for me, so I need to keep motivated to make sure I stay on track, and can finish the marathon strong. So now I'm reaching out to you all for help - give me ideas on how you all stay motivated. I'm open to all suggestions, so go!!!!!
