Not a happy one

When I decided to go to London and not rung the WDW half marathon I gave up on myself a little bit. Following the 15K I gave up on myself all together. I am angry, frustrated, and sad that it took finishing one race and not having another in the line up to make me go back to the person I was before I started training. During training I was brilliant, vibrant and fun to be around, I cared about my appearance and was becoming happy with the way I looked. I ate my veggies 4 servings a day minimum and 4 fruits a day maximum. I glowed. It seems what I have done in my training and becoming a better person has inspired others. Some of you know my sister started a health and fitness blog and is becoming a cleaner eating person as well as exercise being an everyday event. It seems I can keep other people motivated while I sit on the couch and eat popcorn and brownies for dinner. (Not sure how this works but I wish I did)
The farthest i have run since thanksgiving in a 5k on the treadmill and it is not a regular event. This week I went to the gym 2 days and today tried to run outside only to be sidelined by extreme pain in the left shin. My body is angry at me for falling off the wagon and I can not say I blame it I am angry at me to. I have no idea what to do about my shin but I will let it rest till I get to St. Louis on Monday. I will be in the gym on Tuesday trying as hard as I can to get back on the horse and feel good again. I will continue to run in London, Ireland, and Germany it is the best I can do and who wouldn't want to run in 3 beautiful places like those. AKA get your shit together Felicia there is nothing wrong with you you just being a baby!

Sorry for the negative post



  1. I'm sorry hun!! :(

    I cannot tell you how many times I've fallen off the running bandwagon. Unfortunately, it does get REALLY hard to get back on.
    Try it ONE mile at a time. You'll build your way back up there.
    Don't be so hard on yourself, OK. You'll be back!!

  2. I can relate to this! Being injured and off running for a couple months, I felt similar. I still do, really, because I'm dealing with the consequences as I try to start back up. We can do it though!!

  3. Thank you ladies for the encouragement! Things are crazy and getting back on the horse is harder than it seems. I will be making a plan for the Athens half marathon today and will post it. It is 16 weeks away so that allows for slow mileage adding.
