Every Year

Every year, I think around this time I get....I don't know...just blah like.

Our run on Wednesday was a 12 mile run which we cut to 10 miles after we ran the first 5 miles and were exhausted...we ran walked the second half of the run.

Yesterday we had a 12 mile run again and did it at Fermilab. We finished this run, averaging a 8:59 pace which isn't bad....but just felt....I don't know. Bad? Didn't care? Sloppy?

I usually will push myself to a point every year and get a little screwed because I end up exhausted or whatever. This year I must still be recovering from the race. Speaking of the race, I am freaking out about the finish. I don't want to be so competitive and worried about time that I have that kind of ending... it's not fun anymore when that happens.

Anyways, we are just trying to muscle through the runs these days. Today we have a 5 mile recovery run and then Sunday there is 20 on the schedule.....we'll see.

Nice job on pushing yourself. Awesome!

I tend to do the same thing - push myself and then things get sloppy in running, school, etc. That was s scary ending - very shocking when I saw that. Glad you're okay.

Take care!!

Maybe it's the rain! I'm sure it will get better.
