Today’s run went well. I got in 6.5 miles in one hour. I realize that for some it is not that fast but to me it is fast enough. I am aiming for 13.1 miles so that’s fast enough. For this run I added incline for my “hills” and it added some toughness, which was good as well. Even though my run went well, I had some issues in the beginning.
I am having a tough time getting in the mental state for running this far. It seems my mind is its worse enemy. I keep thinking about how I can’t do it and how I’ll never do it. It’s dumb and I need to stop, but it’s a challenge. I’ve never been considered an athlete and one day I decided to run. So needless to say the beginning of my run I was hard on myself. Thankfully my fiance is always so encouraging and keeps me going. The end of my run went well and I felt amazing. I’m happy it did because my half marathon is this weekend! Ahhh! It’s insane to think about that but it’s here. I feel like this last month has gone by so quickly.
She thought I needed a bath after my run apparently. The goofy dog.
