Wow! Less than a month before the next half marathon. Does not seem possible.
My goal is all about time this go around. I have been doing a lot of weights and treadmill workouts. I have been saving my long runs for the weekend. That is when I can see if my training is helping with my speed.
I am feeling pretty good. This past week was very hectic work wise and I did not get in all the gym time I needed. However, things are starting to simmer down and my training can move forward. The best part is I am having fun. I am pushing myself both mentally and physically. I like that.
This race is the first time that I am not concerned about finishing. I know that will occur. This time it is a mental game. I am working just as hard mentally as I have been running. Confidence is something I struggle with as a runner. Confidence in the quality of running not with running itself. For the longest time I would not call myself a runner. I would just go and workout. Runner has a such an important and powerful rIng to it.
So as I enter my last weeks of training, I am energized about the race and the possibilities.
