It’s been a few weeks since I did a Therapy Thursday, but they always help me, so I brought them back.
This week has been my best running week in a long time. I’ve PR’d my 2 mile run twice this week, including this morning when I felt heavy and congested. I ran with no walk breaks (which I’d built into my half-marathon training) both times, and focused on my form when my knee started to hurt.
After signing up for races through January, and setting a few new goals (sub-2:30 half, run a whole half without walk breaks) I decided to start training from base again and go hard. To stop thinking about how hard it is, or that I won’t be able to do it, and just run. And it worked! Granted its only been 2 days and 4 miles, but its working.
So my reminder to myself each morning when I need to run or get cross-training in:
1) You’ve shelled out some serious cash to run these races, you’re committed, and you’re going to kick ass.
2) Put on your running shoes, strap on your Garmin, load up your music, and leave your brain at home. Stop thinking so much and just go.
How do you keep your head out of your runs?
What’s a recent running accomplishment you’ve had?
What goals have you added or updated for yourself?
