Almost Vacations!

Hey peeps!

I’m super excited, after a couple of busy, fun weekends with dance nights, weddings and long runs, it’s just 1 more day to hit the surf board! 

I didn’t mean to see it this way, but in a sense I feel like this is a milestone for me, the summer that I was looking forward to after all this progress. And I’m going to enjoy the hell out of it!

I kicked my 15k’s butt!

All of 10 minutes less than last time I tried. Total PR!

15 kilometers in 01:29:27 - No cramps, no knee rests, no stitches!

I’m super proud. I’m starting to really believe that I could do the 21k in under 2 hours. I gotta keep working hard though! That’s how I’ve come so far. This weekend, my first beach run, and then the next stage: first time running 18k!

Neeerves.

Running is a mental sport, more than anything else. You’re only as good as your training, and your training is only as good as your thinking.

Hey peeps!

Last saturday i had a 13k long run and I nicked off about 10 minutes from the last time I tried more than a month ago! I’ve been following the advice of using these training runs to test my clothing, socks, and even running treats, and gosh, am I greateful for flat seams now!

Next Saturday I’m facing my old pal, the 15K. It’s my current longest distance and longest time running, 1:39:58. I’m confident that I will have a much better pace. In fact, more than confident, the truth is

Society constantly tries to cover my body.
But a monster like this cannot be covered.
It surrenders to its own darkness. It becomes a villain on its own.
