Forget what I said about doing a quick 2 miles yesterday. I've been having some arch pain in my right foot and I thought another day off would be good for it. Today I actually started my pre-training for the half. It was only 3 miles, which is less than I have been averaging lately, but it was hard. The first mile kicked my butt mentally and when I'm mentally struggling I start to physically struggle. My mind was racing
If I can't do 3, how can I do 13.1?
Why is the first mile so hard?
Why does every muscle in my body ache after 1.5 miles?
When can I go home?
How will I do 5 miles on Sunday if I can't do 3 today?
Not a great run today. Tomorrow is another day thought, and another 3 miles. I have to get my head back in the game since this is only going to get harder!
