Gah, this week was rough. On Monday, I was on a weird high of feeling awesome and being excited to run. After my 20 miler on Friday, my legs came back to life and I was ready to run again. I started off with 10 solid miles and then it kind of spiraled into a slug fest from there.
I finally found new shoes, which was a relief after my shoes being discontinued, and was super pumped to run after attending the #FitBlogLA event. I did a 7 miler with the girls team on Wednesday and felt decent but my legs were really sore after that run hence the slower paces runs for the rest of the week. I did a slow 8 miler and was really questioning my preparedness for Santa Clarita by the end of the week. Yes, I did long runs, but was it enough? My running lately has been short and fast and now it’s just a mental game of getting to the finish line.
We’ll see how this week leading up to the race goes. I’m already full of nervous energy and stress eating everything in site, so that’s always good.
