The New Year has been good to me, and I've been training hard ready for my races this year. I've got a focused goal and a plan to achieve it.
My biggest struggle this month has been motivation. Training in winter is a pain, and a lot of people I know who have run marathons say the same thing, that the winter training is the hardest and worst part. I'll be fully honest and say I have skipped a few training runs, so I need to make sure I stay focused from now until April so that I don't kick myself when I inevitably struggle with the marathon.
