The Golden Hour
|Yay for stroller runs|
This week marked the 5th week in a row of pretty regular training. Every day I feel more and more like I can get back to the consistency I was running before Robert. I still have my doubts about whether or not I can actually get in the training I need for a 100, but one step at a time. The goal right now is consistency and I'm getting there. I've been keeping up my speed work as well and starting to not only feel good doing it, but also like I've been slacking a lot lately. The more I've pushed the pace the more I've realized I can maintain a faster pace than I think I can in my head. I just need to stop slacking on my moderate runs so my body remembers I can actually move at something faster than a tortoise pace.
With two weeks left until Surf City I think I'm as prepared as I can be for a winter marathon with 5 weeks notice. I was hoping to get in more of a 22 miler, but 19 followed by 2 days of stroller runs will have to do. Which by the way the warm days that I could get James out for stroller runs this past weekend were pretty much life savers for all of us! It also made Dan and I contemplate moving to California or Florida. I felt surprisingly good too which is always a bonus!
