Half Marathon Training Day 2
Why, yes, that is relatively pathetic pacing. Did you notice? I certainly did when I thought I was going to die halfway through. How do the marathoners do it, people?! And more importantly (if you're as narcissistic as I am), HOW AM I EVER GOING TO RUN A HALF MARATHON?!!!
I'm hoping that the past two runs have been more indicators of how much of my fitness base I lost in the two weeks that I felt like bonding with my couch... and less indicators of my actual running abilities. Right now, I feel that this morning's run showed me that I need to have a heart-to-heart with some ice cream, order a pizza, and give up. But I'm going to try very hard not to listen to that destructive little voice, and stick with it. I'm planning on running another race (!!!) on Monday morning, and even though I'll be using it as a training run rather than "racing" it (HAHAHAHA at the idea of me "racing" anything), I'm going to try to give that run my all. And I think I'm going to try adding in more of the HIIT workouts from Turbo Fire and maybe even some Insanity workouts to get back in shape faster.
... okay, this is officially a boring post. How about I shut the hell up about my failed runs and post some puppy pictures?
