One things I'm struggling with is being patient. The marathon is still a whopping 194 days away, so I have plenty of time. It just is frustrating when I can't run as fast or as far as I want to. I know from previous half marathon races, that the endurance part of running is very much a mental game for me. All three times, I was always able to run further and stronger than I thought. I have lots some of my base that I had 3 years ago since I rarely run anymore. T has a really strong base; he can consistantly do a 6 mile path outdoors in under 45 minutes. Speed-wise he has me easily. My fastest 1 mile ever was 6:58! Just gotta keep plugging away I guess.
Today is 40-50 minutes of running, and then hopefully, I'll be at the new gym and can use the pool for some lazy laps.
