Update - Long Overdue

Friday, October 08, 2010

October 16 is the big day, and its fast approaching. I have been training for this 8k, and I am getting quite nervous!

Up until a few weeks ago, I thought I could do it in my sleep. Then I hit a wall - and the wall pushed back. I had to backtrack in my 8k training series because I was finding I could not keep up! It has been quite disappointing...

After several weeks of terrible, ugly, disgusting runs, I had one of the best ever. Last night, it seemed like everything was perfect. The sky was clear, every star was bright. Not too cold, not too hot, and I could keep up just fine with the pace. Its still week 3 of my 8k program, but I think now there is a good chance I can make it (have been doing 5-6k consistently for months).

Also something amazing has happened. The scale moved! After being stuck in the 270's for six months, I think its safe to say that I am now in the 260's. Woo hoo! The peasants rejoice!
