A&S Mini - Race Training & Motivation


Recommended Posts

Last week was very demotivational. It rained pretty much every day. I only got in 4 workouts. It rained all day Friday and Saturday. Here is hoping to blue skies and sunshine this week...

How's everyone's training coming? I hit 11 miles yesterday in the brutal heat we got yesterday and was struggling for this first time this year to finish. I did it though, but here is hoping my half marathon has nothing similar to yesterday weather wise.

 

Congrats on finishing!!

Thanks! This week I left the house at 6 AM and drank plenty of water and ate before I left. I then brought a couple of GU packs just in case. Of course you can't plan for everything... I fell after stumbling on an uneven section of sidewalk and took and epic tumble into a role and avoided any major damage. This was at mile 4 of a 12 miler and I thought "Oh no! I don't want to have to call my wife at 6:40 in the morning to come pick me up." It ended up being a light scrape on my knee although the trickle of blood by the time I finished down my leg did make for an impressive sight when I walked in the house ;-)

 

I hope everyone is doing strong on the final week of the challenge!
