I find it interesting that I have to work to keep my pace conservative as hard as I have to work to pick it up when I want to push a bit!
After a few weeks of feeling frustrated and completely defeated with my training, I’ve received a little surge of confidence after executing runs that actually felt halfway decent and were enjoyable last week. I’m a little more optimistic than I was in the latter weeks of my training which I think I can attribute to the taper process. I guess we’ll find out in 6 days! EEK!
