I’ve got to be honest…
· 3/7-3/13 = 16.11 miles
· 3/14-3/20 = 35.94 miles
· 3/21-3/27 = 37.02 miles (2 runs over 10 miles)
· 3/28-4/3 = ZERO miles
· 4/4-4/10 = 31.8 miles (1 run over 10 miles)
So what’s left for me to do? Too many negative things have happened for me to honestly say that I’m excited about this race at all anymore. In fact, I’d rather just skip it all together. But that is NOT going to happen. I can’t accept that. I have lowered my expectations quite a bit, I’m now planning on joining the 1:55 pace group in hopes of keeping it in my syb-2 hour goal, but I won’t be surprised after all of this if I just can’t keep up. I’m going to give it my best shot and see what happens. It’s sad to see this race go from one that I was so excited about to one that I’m running because I already paid for it. That’s life. I love running; there is no question of that. But, as with life, things don’t always go your way. All you can do is try hard, give it your best and see what happens. If I don’t hit my goal I’ll move on and set my sights on the next half to achieve it. I just need to spend today getting my head back where it needs to be for tomorrow and just deal with whatever comes my way.
