after a tentative start to the week to make sure my leg was ok, i tackled a long run for the first time in weeks. it wasn’t an exceptional distance ~ only 10 miles~ but i didn’t want to push it any more than i already was. i had hoped to be able to run with the group. though i often prefer the solitude of my run, i’ve come to occasionally crave the companionship. and given the last two weeks, i could have used the moral support. but sab was home and my ex wasn’t picking her up until 7 a.m. so i ventured off alone. i must admit it was a rough run. i never found a perfect rhythm and my cardio stamina wasn’t what it should be but i pushed through and kept a consistent (yet slow) pace.

by tomorrow i should have my revised training plan from eko. i’m a very regimented person and it’s been difficult for me to set my distance based on how my leg felt. i need my goals defined. clearly. i have seven weeks until disney and i need to see ~ in a nice neat little spreadsheet ~ the transition from set back to marathon runner. right now my self-belief is faltering.

22 miles and self-doubt closer to disney.
