MAGDA IN THE MIST

This morning I trained alone as Kristy has come down with the dreaded winter lurgies. I set out to do my 5km run but with legs feeling tired, the best time I could manage was 29 mins exactly. Even though I pushed the last 1/2km to a PRE of 9/10 it wasn’t enough to better my previous time of 28:54. Oh well I guess with the volume of leg work I’m doing, its not likely that I will improve my speed to any notable extent. I’m ok with that.

The best things about this morning’s run were the mist that lay over the northern part of my suburb and the fact that the rain came down heavy after I’d gotten back home. Yeehaa. There is a God!! Now as for the mist…well I absolutely love fog. I loved running through it and I soaked up the beauty of it and felt calm and at peace with myself and what I’m working to achieve.

I have 4 days til comp prep starts officially. On Saturday I will get photos as a record of my 12 weeks out condition. I’m hoping to post them on my blog with my starting and current stats. It’ll be a big revelation…brace yourselves as the before shots are UGLY!!!

So that’s me and my life right now. Nothing ground breakingly exciting but as long as I’m in this positive place and ticking my boxes daily (cardio: done; nutrition: done; weights: done; family: happy) then I’m happy. What more could a figure competitor want? LOL

Cheers all

Magda

Hi Magda, I too went for a run this morning and while I was stretching I looked up and the sky was amazing it was full of stars (I live in the country)its been so long since I've stopped and just looked up, so pretty.

How exciting Magda... only 4 days until the start of comp prep!! I'm getting butterflies for you... actually, come to mention it I get butterflies every time "comp" is mentioned... LOL!! You are going to have so much fun and even in those hard times and energy lulls when it doesn't seem so much fun you are going tolearn so much about yourself. So don't regret any part of the comp prep... after all...

I look forward to following your journey to your very first ever comp :o) xxx

... and then the countdown really begins!! How exciting - 12 weeks til you're up on the stage!

Jogging in the mist sounds lovely, it must be so cold though! I much prefer a treadmill indoors, but I'm such a sook!
