As you know, on 22 September I will be running my next half marathon. Only a little over a month away. Very excited!!!
This week I have been focusing on speed. I have been in the gym on the treadmill and lifting weights. The weights are actually fun. I have been focusing on my legs. The treadmill has not been so much fun. I do not like running on a treadmill. Give me the outside any day!
However, I am hoping this focus will assist in my goal of decreasing my time. After Paris in March, I become confident that I was ready to take this running to the next level. My race in July was a mental challenge that I was not very successfully at. I have kicked that around a bit. It shook me up but I have landed on my feet.
This weekend I will be hitting the trails again applying my speed work to real life. I am looking forward to an eleven mile run on Saturday morning.
Happy feet and happy trails will make this an awesome weekend!
Enjoy your weekend!!!
