*1 You can hit the wall on a training day. You don't just hit it in a race.
*A lot of comments mentioned that I shouldn't be running that much...but honestly...I promise...it IS what the program said. It IS why I ran 14 miles on Sunday and then went walking around Epcot with my family. What isn't it the program that I made a mistake with is running it at my hardest...I am supposed to run a certain pace though....which is what I am still learning
* I also realized that you have to choose one goal at a time...or prioritize a few. I can't beat myself up for time when I am still working on not stopping. I really liked when I read in "Train Like a Mother" (highly recommend), that they describe their goals as good, better and best.
good- being a time goal
better-how you run the race...form, mental toughness, focus
best- finishing! and reminding yourself you are doing what only 4.2 percent of Americans have the motivation and courage to do (FROM TRAIN LIKE A MOTHER)
