I think I can do this. Marathon training has gone well so far. Today, W1D1 (week one, day one), went well. Today, like every Monday in the plan, was a Rest Day. I think I can do this.
Ryan Reynolds had an interesting quote in the March Men's Health magazine after having run the NYC marathon about goals versus expectations. He tries to avoid expectations saying, "When you have expectations, you are setting yourself for disappointment. I didn't expect to finish the marathon; I trained to finish it."
And so will I.
