I had to do 10 miles, it was a stepback week on the HH plan. I was dreading it as I trudged downstairs, prepped myself and headed out the door. It's crazy how those runs you are dreading the most turn out to be some of the best. I really enjoyed the run and felt great the whole way through. Hal (we're on a first name basis) says that by week 9 you start to notice a change on how you feel during the long runs. That they don't seem so long anymore. I got a little taste of that on yesterday's run. It just didn't seem like such a big deal anymore. 10 schmen. I think that is why I like his program...he goes big, bigger and then let's you soak that in for a week with a stepback week. It's good for the mental aspect and helps the body recover also.

Let's cross our fingers that tomorrow will be a better day in the swim department.
Any last minute Tri pointers would be greatly appreciated.
What are some 'mental' obstacles that you have had to get over in your swim, bike or run workouts?
