Getting a new plan

Ever since my marathon in January I have been running by the seat of my pants. That is traditionally my plan as February is my hardest and most stressful time at work. I used to run the Run & Walk for the Whales as stress relief but now I "run" it as the race director only increasing the February stress.

As much as I like the down time and no stress running I wonder if it is really setting me up for success to reach my big running goals and perhaps, sticking to a plan during this stressful time could be therapeutic. Unfortunately we won't know that until next year IF I make a plan and stick to it. And yes, I make my own plans 98% of the time.

I am a certified RRCA running coach and have all the tools I need to personalize running plans and yes, I can make one for you. All my coaching fees (see my facebook page for details) and craft store proceeds go to my Silent No More campaign fund to support that ministry in my life. The support is nowhere near where I would like it to be and I pray that funding increases so I can place ads, stock fliers, and do so much more to bring awareness and healing to my neck of the woods. But not my will but God's will be done. I know He supports my ministry but the means I dream of may not be the steps He wants me to take at this point of time. All in His timing, all in His timing.

And with my belly flop fall last week I was motivated to come up with my own new training plan to carry me through my marathon in September and beyond. Unfortunately, I was misguided on my injuries. Who knew they would take longer to heal than my post marathon recovery time. I am a weepy, seepy mess but thankful it wasn't worse as it could have been. My sister proves that. On the day I hit the pavement she hit a bump in a golf cart, played Super Woman, and ended up breaking her arm and needs surgery. If you are the praying type, please hold her in your prayers for a speedy recovery.

Daily Gratitude: I am thankful that I am healing quickly even if it isn't as quick as I hoped.

Daily Bible Verse: Search me, God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. ~ Psalm 139:23-24


  1. I don't think you blogged about your belly flop! Praying for a speedy recovery for you and your sister.

    1. Now that you mention it, I don't think I did either! I shared on facebook etc but somehow my toe hit a bump in the sidewalk and I landed full belly flop on the edge of the sidewalk and the road. I am so thankful I landed as I did because I honestly feel if I hadn't I would have broken something.
