As my next race – a small, local 6-miler – is already this Sunday, I’ve decided to reduce my mileage this week.
Today’s run wasn’t that great. My legs felt heavy, my stomach has been acting up, and I’ve been feeling a little under the weather the past few days. But I’m still glad, that I got another run in. I also plan to do another short-ish run before Sunday, and that has to be enough.
- Distance: 3.8 miles (6,1 km)
- Time: 43:40 minutes
- Average pace: 11:29 min/mile
- Feeling: Sluggish
I’m seriously getting nervous about my upcoming race. I surely haven’t trained enough, so my expectations are very low. But I still want to run that race and give my best! Yes, I’m stubborn, so what?!
My goal for this 6 mile race is to finish it running and with a smile. If I finish in under 1:10:00, I’ll be more than happy. After that race, I want to work on my speed. I’ve really had enough of my snail pace, that has to change!
