I slept like a baby last night! I think it's my body's way of saying, "Thank you for not punishing me these last few days, now I can relax!" Boy do I have a surprise come Monday, REST UP little guy!! Bwaahahhahaaaa!!!
On a more serious running note, I had my last speed run yesterday. It was a total of 4 miles with 2 - 1 mile intervals at a 6:02/mile pace in the middle. The most encouraging part was my average heart rate for the first speed mile was 147 and the second speed mile was 156. So, I feel confident that my body can push when I need to dig deep with worrying about going beyond my limits. I just have to convince my brain and my legs that it is a good idea!! Sometimes I think being mentally prepared is the bigger battle during training and this was a big boost!
Thanks to Austin Zander and A2O Fitness for getting me in the best shape of my life! I know the training will be difference maker to help me push through the last miles!
Make it a great day! Ryan
