Three weeks ago, I ran a half marathon.
You all know the story. It was a blast.
But, I have to admit....it left me wondering. If I felt that good, what am I capable of?
This Sunday, I'm running RNR Vegas. When I signed up, it was going to be me and my girlfriends getting together to have fun. No one was really planning on running for a PR. We were going to run as a group.
Since then, they've all dropped out....for various reasons. That's fine by me. You gotta do what you gotta do.
It leaves me
to figure out
if I have the guts enough to chase a PR
at the half marathon
which hasn't happened in a really long time
and I could go into many many many reason why IT COULDN'T HAPPEN.
and I have only ONE reason why it should
So with all the reasons that it shouldn't happen, trailing behind me, nipping at my heels, I have decided to ignore them.
For the past 3 weeks, I have worked on my nutrition.
I have done my workouts as PRESCRIBED....no excuses....no but I don't want to....
None of that.
If my flight gets delayed....fine with me....I'm bringing on water an ipod and a great book.
I have an excellent dinner planned Saturday night. I have breakfast and lunch and snacks....more of a guideline, but it's a plan nonetheless.
Whether I PR or not is yet to be decided.
For all those logical reasons as to why it SHOULDN'T happen.
I've only got one reason why it should.
Because I WANT IT.
