I didn’t wear my arch supports today. When I wore them last week, I felt like I was rolling too much out wards on my ankles. While I can’t sustain the pace for an extended period of time, I know that if I start to feel tired, I can pick up my knees and I can pick up my pace. I managed to get 10 miles in under 2 hrs and hit 12 miles at 2:18.
So far, I’m on track for right around 2:35 min half. I’m trying not to get my hopes high for a PR, but I will work for it! Miles 9 & 10 are the hardest for me mentally. I had to walk a bit, just a couple of minutes, but I still stopped to take a walk break. In fact, I took two conscious walk breaks. I have to work on starting off a little slower to ratchet up my energy towards mid race.
I know my feet hurt because I haven’t been putting up the proper weekly mileage. This week, I’ve planned my runs a little better, so hopefully I can put the miles in for the week.
Tonight, I binged watched Parks and Rec season 4. (BTW: I love Adam Scott’s character. He’s just like me – stressball rule follower.). Here’s my view:
Two weeks until Women’s Race Series in Scottsdale! I can do this!
Total miles: 15.25 miles
