So you all know I’m trying to train for my first marathon, and then 13 weeks later I’ll be doing my second marathon. I’ve already done 2 official half marathon races and I’m trying to run a half marathon every month for a year as something on my bucket list.
So yesterday when it was time to do a 10 miler I thought nothing of it. Yet I struggled after 3 miles. Maybe I wasn’t in a running mood, maybe I’m tired from work, maybe allergies were trying to kick my butt. Whatever it was I still got it done but was slow even for me.
Why am I telling you this. Basically don’t give up. It’s fine to slow down even take a few walk breaks if you need to but the feeling of sticking with it and completing what you set our to do over comes all of that and is one of the best feelings ever.
