1. I think I am really enjoying this low mileage week, especially after two 10s and a 21 last week. I am amazed at how fast my legs feel on 5 and 6 mile runs... this is WHY we follow a plan, right? Remind me this when I am return to cursing it next week when I bump back up before a taper.
2. I am starting to freak out about attempting a dramatic PR at Baltimore Half Marathon on October 15th. It never dawned on me that I had potential to get a huge PR. I was fine with treating it as a long run. Until... coach gave me pointers on making it. I hate the pressure I put on myself.
Yes, Gabbi and I *do* have a lot of moments. Most of those moments are awesome. The moments that aren't so awesome seem to be harder on me. I know it will get better... but whose idea was it to get a "puppy" in the middle of marathon training? Pleeeeeaaassssssse, stop barking at 2am!
