I was shocked this week when I realized we have finally come to the near the half way point of our training. Tomorrow closes week 9. I haven’t been too shaky yet, but that may be changing next week when we hit the next week… The uncharted territory.
Also I think that the smartest mental move I’ve made is to put my finishing weight loss goals on the shelf. I’ve been teetering about 5 lbs since I began this all. I was getting upset BUT I also began to see the muscle definition in my legs popping out more. Quite literally… I’m getting stronger and that’s just way better than skinnier!
As for now, I’ll be going to sleep and waking up crazy early for a weekend morning to go run 10 miles. I need to not look so lightly at this mileage but take it as a mental rest for the 15 miler ahead!
