I’m still here.
I’m still training.
I’m still plugging away.
Some days are good and some days are crap.
I try to balance them out, so I don’t feel so bad and out of shape.
Seemed so far away, but is now so close.
Will I be ready?
I’m trying and that is all I can do. I’m getting runs in when I can. I still am only training for distance. If anything, I am trying to get back to controlling my pace and not let it control me. My pace currently is slow, but I keep running faster than I should. If I continue to do that, things will not go well for 13 miles. I keep telling myself that I just need to finish. I keep trying to run at what was an easy pace in the past, but is a fast pace now. It’s easier said than done to change that thought process.
Then I come across a blog post detailing the course and how so much harder it is from the old course.
