Quick Training Update!
Training & Central Park:
Oh boy, there are seven days left until the Bronx 10 Mile race and 21 days until my second half marathon, the Staten Island half. I would certainly love to PR both of these runs, that would be an amazing feeling and just an amazing accomplishment. But who knows, my training is saying that I might be able to pull it off, but of course race day might say otherwise.
A couple of days ago I ran 10 miles and I have to say it was somewhat difficult. When I ran I feel the first three miles for me are pretty difficult and I honestly wanted to quit after mile five because I felt like I just couldn't do it anymore.
I kept telling myself "I've already ran 8 miles, so running five miles today is ok," then I remembered that I am also training for a half marathon and not just a 10 mile race. But I still kept telling myself "well, I can run five maybe six miles today and then run 12 on Saturday." I wanted to cheat the training, I wanted to eliminate miles because I was tired and just didn't feel like it. But I did ended up running the 10 miles and I felt great.
Look at these numbers...
However it's now Saturday as I write this and I didn't run those 12 miles. I didn't get a chance to put that mileage in, so of course that's going to be done tomorrow. I just hope I don't become tired and lazy!
