building blocks

July 3, 2013 at 8:59 am 1 comment

little by little i’ve dared the road ~ and the trails. four miles here. four miles there. a saturday eight, then nine, then 10. and when all of june was said and done, i’d somehow found myself with 68 miles behind me.

so sunday i finally did it. wrote the plan for MCM i’ve hesitated to put to pen. i knew i’d get there but wasn’t sure the goals were realistic. but now i know they are. official training starts monday. sixteen weeks of eat, breath and sleep the run to get what i want.

the acceptable ~ a PR (sub 4:15)
the expected ~ sub-4
the kick-ass dream ~ 3:45 … a BQ

i’m doing this one right. time to train. eased in and base re-built. body, mind and soul committed. i’m ready to see what i can really do.

    sub 3:45 is very much within reach. Make sure you get intervals and longer marathon-pace runs on the plan. And have a very smart race plan in place.
