Ship’s Log–March 14th

PicShells

The training plan I’m following called for a slow 2 mile run today. Running such a short distance at such a slow pace was a mental and emotional challenge. I felt like I was slacking off the entire short run. I saw another runner while I was out there, and I was embarrassed to be seen plodding along like a snail. I like to push myself so much harder than that…but then I guess that’s why I’ve always got pain and minor injury bothering me in one way or another.

I’ll have to get used to it, though, since this plan includes a fair number of slow, plodding runs, just like today’s. I hope this really does help me to become faster overall. This year is going to be the year I slay my Great White 2-Hour Whale, I just know it.
