Intense day! I'm already almost out of time before I have to leave to go to work. Boo!
Katherine and I got up and went for a 6 miler this morning with one goal: make it home in time to shower and go to church... and we did it! I feel like I finally was able to push myself a little harder today than I have in a while, though my pace still hasn't EVER gotten to my race pace during a training run. I know I can get there. I also know that I took several months of being a lazy "runner" and only running a few times a month. Now, though, I feel like I'm improving a lot and that I can get there.
Anyways, today finished out week three of training! It's really hard to believe that I'm three weeks into this and that Chicago is three months away (exactly!) from yesterday. Life is pretty intense.
I'm looking forward to my rest day tomorrow. I might go for a short ride on the spin bike and do a little bit of lifting. (I do really need to start incorporating weight training.) Otherwise, I'm going to read a little and work on getting a "grown up" job. It's time that I work full time... mostly so that I can afford more races. (and have health insurance when I'm kicked off of my mom's insurance in October. Am I really less than three months from being 26...?!)
Anyways... fun, busy day so far. Now work time. (less fun... but that's okay.)
Goal: 1000 miles/366 days
So far: 330.94 miles/190 days
To go: 669.06 miles/176 days
