TIME TO EVOLVE: WEEK 10

ALL WAS WELL UNTIL MY LONG RUN ON SATURDAY. BUT I DIDN'T QUIT AND WAS DETERMINED TO COMPLETE THE FULL 16 MILES ON THE DOCKET. EVERY RUN HAS A PURPOSE. THIS ONE SURELY WASN'T THE FASTEST, BUT IT MADE ME STRONGER.

HIGHLIGHTS:

MOST CHALLENGING: THE LONG RUN.

THIS WEEK’S 16 MILES COULD NOT HAVE GONE WORSE. I HAVE YET TO HAVE A LONG TRAINING RUN THIS BAD. MY LEGS FELT INCREDIBLY HEAVY BEFORE I EVEN MADE IT A 1/4 THROUGH THE DISTANCE. BUT I STUCK WITH IT AND TOLD MYSELF TO IGNORE THE PACE, JUST COVER THE DISTANCE. SHOUTOUT TO DAVE FOR MEETING ME AT THE VERY END ICE COLD WATER IN ONE HAND,  CHOCOLATE MILK IN THE OTHER.

MOST SURPRISING: MONDAY RECOVERY RUN

I WENT OUT SLOW AT MY RECOVERY PACE, BUT SOON FELT IT WAS TOO SLOW. I WANTED TO MOVE FASTER. SO I SPED UP GRADUALLY, TURNING MY RECOVERY RUN INTO QUITE A NICE TEMPO. I FELT GREAT, SO I STAYED WITH IT AND COMPLETED 5 EASY MILES.

LOOKING FORWARD TO: TAKING A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO NEXT SATURDAY'S LONG RUN.
