Voluntary Discomfort is the secret cornerstone of strength. We build our whole lives around increasing comfort and avoiding discomfort, and yet by doing so we are drinking a can of Weakness Tonic with every morning’s breakfast. ~Mr. Money Mustache 5K PR: 23:40 10K PR: 48:57 HM PR: 1:59:37 30K: 2:57:44
It sounds like you had a great plan and followed it. Success IS contagious.

"Pain is temporary. It may last a minute, or an hour, or a day, or a year, but eventually it will subside and something else will take its place. If i quit, however, it lasts forever..That surrender, even the smallest act of giving up, stays with me" Lance Armstrong
I just finished my first HM in Oklahoma and it went great. I used the Galloway method and follwed a 3 month training program. Instead of GU at mile six I ate my raisins and the worked perfectly. I could not have asked fir a better first race experience. I believe I am hooked on running and HMs. Already looking forward to the next one. Stay strong!
