Shhhhhhhhh. . . . Don’t look. It is July 1. Already!
One-third of the 20 week marathon training has gone. Bye bye.
But I am not panic, because I feel strong in my training progress.
Legs feel good from today’s 6 miles easy (9:00 to 9:45) w/4 x 20 sec strides workout.
But more noticeably, I am in a much calmer state of mind this time around.
Absent the mental stress of the past years’, the training schedule is my friend.
Everyday I look to the schedule and run what is planned. Day by day.
Yeah, I can’t run a decent marathon today. But thirteen more weeks . . .
We shall see.
Here is a Happy July to you.
