AM: 4 miles easy
PM: Paul texted that practice was on our own. Got thinking about track and got excited because I realized that this year I’m in good shape and might actually be able to PR, last year I was struggling to get in shape and was 6-8 lbs heavier than I am now. Even the thought of going sub 5:20 again is exciting, I know I can do that. I’ve gone 5:45 in practice before and it’s been fairly relaxed, I’m sure if I got into race mode and worked hard I could do it in indoor. When I talked to Paul he said to work for a 5:10 mile, then go for 5:00. It’s been a long time since I’ve believed in myself, but I’m starting to again, and I’m actually getting excited. Gives me something to work towards, and is a good reminder that I’m training right now for that, and that every day counts and is one step closer to achieving it.
Maybe got a little too excited. Went 9.25 miles at 7:37 average, making it 13.25 miles for today. Legs are a little tired but it feels good
