We all have those off days, for me today was one of those. The second half of my run was more challenging than last week. Given I PR’d for a half marathon I was surprised by today. I really can’t complain, I was supposed to be running a 9:40 min/mi pace. So in reality I was pushing when I shouldn’t have been. Some times I think about giving up the focus on pace and even getting faster and just go out and enjoy the run for what it is. I’m sure at some point I’ll get there, I’m just not sure if I’m ready to be at that place yet.
When you are running for almost 2 hours you have a lot of time to think. These days life seems crazy, and even overwhelming at times. My thoughts, and prayers, spanned a whole gamut of things from family, friends, work, side projects, and of course missing time with the HWI team. Things have just not worked out to join the team for Saturday runs. I’m usually getting up at 5-6am to get my runs done early. Hopefully it will work out again soon. #HWI #Run4Water #WhyIRun #RiverBankRun
