Vigor:1 : active bodily or mental strength or force 2 : active healthy well-balanced growth especially of plants 3 : intensity of action or effect : force
I have been feeling vigorous lately! Runs have been strong, and enjoyable, the body is healing and prepared for the next training segment. I must break four hours in the marathon! Why? I don't really know except I believe I can do it and I've set my mind to the vision. A Problem: I am becoming fascinated with trail running, but I have to conquer this goal first.
Today it is 86 degrees with 56% humidity, much cooler than yesterday. I actually knocked off a 9:17 mile w/o trying in the mid afternoon sun! I'm thinking big!! I can shatter four hours!
Tomorrow I will hit the track with the intent of lowering my mile time. I need to hit 1:45's on each 400 to get to where I need to be, in my mind anyway. It'll be hot, humid, but I thrive in this....I am feeling vigorous! Hope it continues....I am seriously considering the Minneapolis marathon in October!! Thanks Beth! It all depends on my ability to get time off. Peace!!
