I felt really strong during my runs this week after taking it easy last week while being sick. This week felt good to put my head down and put in some hard work. I really enjoyed the interval days.
Saturday's long run felt good for the first two and a half hours. I started to gas out in the last 30 minutes but I really tried to use that to prepare myself for the last 6 -8 miles of race day which I know will feel hard and I will have the stay mentally strong to keep putting one foot in front of the other.
It's under 30 days until race day and I'm getting excited!
