a 10 K this Saturday, that is. ????
I have not been training as planned this year... and I had planned to run a 5 mile race last week (which I bailed on due to icy conditions and lack of prep)... but I have a 10K on my calendar for this Saturday. The most I've run this year is 4.5 miles, so this would be adding another 1.7 to that... and I know that it would be hard on me.
But the other side of me is telling me that I am off track on my training... I need to get back on somewhere... and if feeling the aftermath of a 10K is what I need ... then do it.
So, that's where I am today. Tonight is a 5 mile treadmill run... to try to get me into the mindset of 10K Saturday... but I have to admit that my heart is not in it.
Am I crazy? I know that I will walk/run whatever I do (even the 5 miles tonight)... but I feel like I need a kick in the pants... and without a workout buddy to help me with that... I have to do it to myself (great mental picture there!).
