- Wedding: November 2011
I’m new to running I began running in February of this year. I am now training for a marathon or 1/2 I haven’t fully decided which one I’m actually going to do. In the midst of my training I became engaged 🙂 May 26th to be exact. My FH set our wedding date to Nov 30th of this year. I have alot on my plate right now between running 6 days a week, wedding crafts, and kids oh the kids. I’m a stay at home Mom (my FH and I are basically already married just excited to make it official) we have a 2 year old and 1 adopted and 2 foster. Our 2 foster have special needs. I’m spending about 3 hours on wedding crafts every day because I am such a control freak and feel the need to make everything myself (also no one has offered to help). This really isn’t a rant to complain because I am actually very happy with my life right now. Now to the point I call my marathon training my affair. I’m always trying to sneak a run in I’m gone Sunday mornings for 3+ hours to get my long runs in. I”m also gone every Tuesday night to do a track speed work out with fellow runners. As I’m typing this I am so thankful my FH is so supportive of my running! I’m also exhausted all the time my sex drive hasn’t really gone away I’m just to tired to do it! This bugs my FH but he manages to make it by with his 2-3 times a week. I just keep telling him it’s almost over at the end of Sept my marathon affair will be over. Also I forgot to mention my shortest run is 5 miles so I am either locked in my exercised room or our running on the roads at least an hour a day with the exception of Monday my rest day. I know this isn’t a question I just had to get my feelings out there as I am sitting here drinking my espresso as tired as any human could possibly be dreading when the kids wake up and the quiet disapears. Ready to start my crazy life and marathon affair all over again. Anyone else dealing with weird emotions/feelings while training for your marathon?
