6 weeks down, 6 weeks to go! I’m not going to post my times because thay gets boring and I have them saved over at RunKeeper. Instead, I want to reflect on my training so far.
I have a love /hate relationship with the training. I love the improvement I’ve seen in myself so far. I hate the tempo and speed runs, but I know that is what is making me a better runner. I love that 6 miles is easy to me, and I’m looking forward to seeing how far these legs will go. I can see how people like longer distances, I’ve had so much time to myself to just think and let go. Running to me is a stress reliever. I try to keep my stress to a minimum but I just have some days at work that I get so frustrated and all I can think about to keep myself calm is that in so many hours I can go run and get it out.Maybe its the fresh air, or the world moving around me, or even the sound of the pavement under my feet. Whatever it is works for me, and I will continue to use this to push me to the race.
To keep me motivated this week:
exactly 40 days till race day, and I can not wait!
