Yep, you read correctly….
Today on my long run I tried to “race” the half marathon distance. <—– which in hindsight was probably pretty dumb. Oh well. Unfortunately my ipod hasn’t been working and so when it did this morning I used my nike plus and it kept stopping throughout my run so I only logged the distance it captured…..I’m thinking I may have run longer
Anyway….so 12.86 miles in 2:02:48!!!!! I’m stoked! I really hope to achieve a similar time for my race in a few weeks.
This run was a mental struggle for me the entire time but I just kept trying to take in my surroundings and being thankful for them and the ability to run
I saw this hawk swoop down along the way and then I was instantly reminded of how awesome life is
*Thanks for the motivation little buddy. (can you see him on the branch?)
I also kept repeating this mantra over and over “I am willing to release all blocks that keep me from completing my run today” – it worked.
1. what’s the furthest you’ve ever run??
TODAY!!!! 12.86 miles
2. do you like ice baths?? should I have one??
3. do you have any running/working out mantras???
