I vote #1. And maybe #2. Those suckers are the hardest for sure.
Seriously. I mean, by the time you get to #7 you are all warmed up. It’s lucky #7.
I talk big. I have been running a ton lately. It’s the accountability. I have a lot of races to prepare for and I don’t want to let myself down and I don’t want to let Michelle down. So I run. It’s made me very strong this year. Even with my migraine and thyroid issues that led to weeks of NON running…I still am stronger. It feels very good.
Yesterday was hard. I was sick, I was cold, I was tired. I chose sleep. Today I decided I must power through. So I did. It was seriously cold.
As predicted, I warmed up. I finished five miles and felt great. Cold but great. Interestingly, Michelle said I speed up as I go and that is pretty clear. My splits were crazy funny based on her saying that.
