The Mixed-Up Kid

I can't believe it is 3 weeks until the half.  I still don't know if I'm trained enough for it.

I was telling D about my attitude about the whole thing.  Since I already got below 3 hours, I really don't care about getting faster.  I'm just about enjoying myself.  Except I do care when I'm on the treadmill (when I make it to the gym) or out for a long run.  And my long runs are on roads I would have never dreamed of running prior to this training.  They are hills. They roll. They incline slowly.  They pitch straight up.  I know they are there, and I choose to go up them.  Down...I tend to walk.  I have no clue what is going on in my head or my training.

My 9 and 10 mile run paces were all over the place from the moment, "Go!"  My 7 mile was quite steady.

So I haven't been blogging because I don't know what to say.  I'm slacking on my running except when I do it?  I'm having a lot of fun looking around?  When I'm out running, I'm looking around at neighborhoods, seeing people and places for the first time (despite driving past them every day). When I get back, I look at the times and go, "I guess I should have run faster."  Who knows?  The weather is gorgeous except for the pollen, so I'm going to continue to have fun and feel guilty all at the same time.

As long as you are enjoyong doing what your doing, I'd say keep on doing it the way you want to! Without guilt or explanation... I think running is very pwesonal and there is no "one size fits all" way to do it! That is weird about running up & walking down the hills though, I walk up and haul ass DOWN! :D
