So, sometimes I think I’ve bitten off more than I can chew. Five half marathons in 5 days? What the hell was I thinking? I haven’t run long since April. I haven’t run fast since 2010. What makes me think I can do this?
Today I ran 10 miles. They weren’t awful. In fact, they had moments of really good. On the whole, they were ok. But you know what makes them awesome? The fact that yesterday I ran 7 miles. And the day before I ran 5.3. And the day before that I ran 5.1. The back to back mileage is building slowly and my body is playing along. That is what made the 10 today awesome.
Slow and steady. That’s how I’m going to get there and that’s how I’ll be running the races.
