I just PR'd with a 2:01:20 this weekend in Atlantic city...which I am super excited about....the frustrating part is that I have my eyes set on a sub 2. Yes, now you can see the problem. During that beautiful AC run, yours truly stopped at least 6 times. Not long but certainly long enough to call it a stop.
Very long and complaining story short, I need to build the mind and I need your help!
Here are some of the facts:
* I felt great after the 1/2- no soreness which was weird for me.
* Rested and did nothing for two days.
*Trying to hit an 8:57 for a mid-tempo run. (I'm wondering if I'm going out too fast...burning out too quick?)
(ps...to you fast runners...too quick for me and too quick for you are two different things. Please take that into consideration. Thanks so much. )
All this going fast stuff is new to me. I am not good at feeling uncomfortable.
I need help feeling uncomfortable. I need push. I need direction with this...
Feel free to advise....
