- I will NEVER be a 60 mile a week runner. I see folks like Aron (Runner's Rambles) and all the Pfitzinger followers out there and they impress me, but I will never be them. I'm glad I found a plan that allows me to run just 3 days a week because that's more my style. So future boot camps will involve less running mileage!
- Boot camp is not advisable after 3 years of terrible work hours and sleep deprivation. Much as my mind wanted me to exercise, my body needed sleep and lots of couch time. Today is the first morning where I don't feel completely, utterly exhausted, though I still don't feel quite back to myself.
- I don't follow training plans very religiously. I know a lot of people do and I'm super impressed by that, but I never will. I try to do the running part, more or less, but the cross-training falls off often. At the same time, the more ambitious my plan, the more I will do. Back when I was making weekly training plans w/ weekly assessments of how well I followed my plans I was getting in a lot of 2-a-days and a fair amount of cross-training. So, back to blogging my weekly plans! That should hold me more accountable.
- Lastly, and this has nothing to do with exercise, I need to acknowledge about how little self control I have w/ eating. When there is "bad" food around, I eat it. So I need to NOT HAVE UNHEALTHY FOOD AROUND. I hope my husband is reading this;)

Special thanks for the marathon suggestions you guys gave last week! For Texas, I've narrowed it down to Dallas White Rock (thanks, Jamoosh) vs Austin. For S Dakota, Sioux Falls is a winner (thanks Jeri). And Michelle totally convinced me that the Eugene Marathon is the way to go for Oregon. Now, I just need to work on finding time to travel......
