Some Doubts

Today I started having some doubts about finishing my half marathon in November.
I know that it's early.
I know this is normal.
I just need to stop thinking about it and just do it.
Most of my doubts are stemming from the fact that my feet are starting to hurt again when I run uphill.
I've been doing some hill training because from what I've been told by my friends who run and from the lovely book my husband got me for our anniversary is that "Hills strengthen you as a runner."

I'm not giving up.
I just wanted to express my fears here. After all, this is my honest journey to health.

Today's Activities and Food
35 minutes stationary bike
upper body with free weights
1 cup Kashi Crunch cereal, 1/2 cup nonfat milk
1 multigrain english muffin, tomatoes, 1 TBS B&B spread, 6 slices lean deli turkey
1 BLT with 2 slices whole grain bread
1 cup strawberries

You can do this. Having doubts at this point is normal. Think positive and take on those hills with a attitude.. You go girl.

M, I can definitely relate to how you are feeling. It's so frustrating when you heart and mind are strong willed and your body is saying something different. All I can say is listen to your body, if you can't run the whole half marathon, walk it. Or you can do a little bit of both depending on how your feet feel! I'm sorry you are going through this right now, I know how excited you are about running this marathon!!! Take it easy and I hope all works out for you!

I think that by November you will be in such great shape that your feet will no longer hurt. Best of lucj and you can do it!
