That sounds like a good number for a half marathon bib, right? Even if it doesn't, agree with me. Because that's the number I'll be sporting at the Cellcom Green Bay Half Marathon in just over a week. We're talking 10 days people. So close.
And since race day is approaching, the training runs are becoming shorter.
Tuesday night I had 6 on the schedule. And I'll admit. I seriously considered skipping the run. I felt very blah when I walked out of my office after work. It was late. I was hungry. I really had no motivation to run. But then I remembered race day was approaching. So I forced myself to go and hit the treadmill at the YMCA. And the first 2 miles? They sucked. Big time. But I upped the speed a bit and, not surprisingly, the run got easier. By the time I finished the 6 miles I was feeling good and so glad I didn't bail on the run.
Tonight I had no problems lacing up the sneakers. The weather? Gorgeous! Perfect running weather. Sunny! Temperatures right around 60. Very little wind. I could hardly wait to get home and throw on my running gear. The 3 miles I had to do tonight were fabulous. All of my miles were right around the 9:40 pace. And I finished the run feeling really good. Bring on Green Bay!
