It is getting very tough, both mentally and physically.
Mentally the week was difficult. I had again a few tough runs but mostly it is getting to be a lot with running 5 times a week. The actual running 5 times a week isn’t as bad as the feeling that I HAVE to run 5 times a week has been difficult. I am getting tired of the training program.
It is also getting difficult with my long runs. I ran 10 miles for my long run today. I was struggling to make it, but I did make it. I need to keep that in mind that no matter what, I made the run and I got through it.
For those counting at home: Week 8 total was 29.07. My mileage actually dropped this week from last week for those astute readers. I do a speed run on a treadmill on Tuesdays at my gym. This week there was no air circulation in there and I struggled to do 3 miles. I was totally overheating and I felt it to be unsafe. I am ok with it because it was unsafe.
