week 6 in training for the half, and have hit a wall of de-motivation
I have to say, I have felt pretty darn good about my training up until this month. I managed to keep up my running through the first week, and did overall pretty good. This week, the fatigue of 12 hour days just caught up to me. I have only walk... Read more
