Plans are made to be broken...

Or is that rules?
Whatev same thing, right?
I've finally come to the conclusion that training plans are not really for me. If it's says I should run 7 and I run 5, I feel like a failure. I should run easy, but I want to run hard. I should hit mile repeats at 7:15, but it's 95 degrees and hot, and I'm just not there...
I don't need a plan to get in my miles, I can definitely do that on my own, ditto for "quality" runs.

Life, just like running has and always will be unpredictable, a hard-fast plan just doesn't fit into my equation. Now that I've finally accepted that, I feel like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I never want running to feel like a chore. Strength training on the other hand is a completely different story. That's the chore that I seem to always put off or find an excuse to skip, and that has to stop.

Today's run: 9.21 miles/1 hour 21 min.
I was aiming for 10, baby Leila woke up, so 9.21 it was.

Now goto the grocery store and get Turkey Hill Double Dunker Ice Cream!!!!
It is Mocha ice cream with "oreo's," chocolate chip cookie dough, and a fudge swirl....
There are no words.
... and I ate it with Publix Chocolate overload cake...

I'm going to eat dessert now... have a good rest of your weekend!
