It is safe to say "I'm struggling!"

  I seem to have a barrier I'm dealing with....I get to a certain point in training and suddenly I go sedentary and lose everything! No excuses! I think I will just have to revert to a traditional schedule....the hills really made me strong but perhaps they sucked out all the life, too? There must be an intelligent balance and I'm often more brawn than brain when it comes to training. So today I just went real easy, funny, the pace was faster than normal easy? 3.2 miles in the 50 degrees! I will always keep running as a part of my life, we all deal with barriers, relational, physical, spiritual, etc, so I'm hopeful I can break through and get me some marathon this year! Peace!

Maybe register for a marathon and then find a training plan that you can follow. It should keep you focused to do specific training.
