Why don’t they teach us about stress in high school? Or self-control? Or self-talk?

“Most often we fall in love with the person we think we love, only to discover that for them, we are just for passing time. While the one who truly loves us remains either a friend or a stranger. So here’s a piece of advice; don’t settle for the one who’s passing time. Take your time, be sure. Your life is too precious.” Lessons Learned in Life (via onlinecounsellingcollege)

“Marry someone who lets you have a bite of their brownie, even when you said you weren’t hungry. Marry someone who laughs at the same things you do. Marry someone who kisses your nose on a cold day. Marry someone who you can watch Disney movies with. Marry someone who is proud of you whether you earn £5 a week or £5,000 a week. Marry someone who you can tell everything to. Marry someone who isn’t afraid or embarrassed to hold your hand in public. Marry someone who lets you take over when decorating a cake. Marry someone who you can spend the day in Ikea with without feeling stressed. Marry someone who wraps you up inside their coat in the winter. Marry someone who accepts your fears and phobias. Marry someone who gives you butterflies every time you hear their key in the door. Marry someone who you don’t always have to shave your legs for. Marry someone who accepts you all day every day, even when you don’t look or feel your best. Marry someone who puts three sugars in your tea, despite telling them “just the two”. Marry someone who doesn’t judge you when you eat your body weight in cookies. Marry someone who doesn’t make you want to check your phone, because you know they will reply. Marry someone who waits with you to get on the train. Marry someone who understands that you need to be alone sometimes. Marry someone who gets on well with your parents and isn’t uptight about family events. Marry someone who calms you down when you get mad about stupid stuff, and never tells you it’s “only stupid stuff”. Marry someone who makes you want to be a better person. Marry someone who makes you laugh. Marry someone who you love. Marry your soulmate, your lover, your best friend.” (via fixmyhearrtxo)

WRNR 2013 - Race Plan

Race Plan:

Beginning: Stay relaxed and use the first mile as the last piece of your warm-up. In the past 2 races this year you’ve shot out at 5:45 pace, but haven’t been able to maintain it. Don’t be a cannon! 1st mile - 6:05-6:10 

Middle: From mile 2 to mile 4, the focus is on staying in the core race pace range 5:58-6:02 per mile. Stay as relaxed as possible and using as little energy as possible. Focus in the mile your in, don’t worry about what is next or what has happened. Stay in the moment. Don’t get “racey” on this part.

End: Okay, the last mile, take it a minute at a time. Think of it as a progressive mile. Use the competition to help you, focus on staying with someone, catching someone, or pulling away from someone. If you are having a great day here is where you pour it on, not before this. Remember you’ll be hurting, but ask yourself if you have anything left? The answer is usually yes! 5th mile - 5:54

Goal Time: sub 31 min.
