Funny how things are going right now in my training. For instance today I was going along really well, feeling strong, running sub tens on the hills when BAM! Right around 8.5 miles the bottom fell out! Just like a bag of groceries giving out! Ugh! I was done! Problem was I was still 2.5 miles from home! Lately this has been the story, it's like my gas tank is half full, I have fuel to start out but I run out? I think this is indicative of lack of recovery. Today I enjoyed the sauna like weather and made it home even though I was toast! I am still going to downshift this week!
Totals-11.14 miles/ 2:09:17/ 11:36. The hill at 8.5 did me in today!
I used to keep a hand written running journal but in October of 2008 I started this blog. I have archives of Journals from all the way back to 1985. Most of my entries are just totals and training plans but every so often I'll write down some thoughts or observations.
I was awakened at 2am this morning and drawn to seek God for several hours. I still got up at 5:25am so perhaps lack of rest caused the bottom to fall out, but I wouldn't trade that time for anything!
Today before the bottom fell out I actually was in the zone! Running was easy and effortless! I was able to disassociate and totally internalize my sermon for Sunday!!
I really need to race! I think I'm chicken! Peace!!
