Where has the time gone?
It sure has been a while since I've written for this blog. Luckily there is not too much ground to cover in the past month. Since last time, I've only one race down in the state of Delaware. It was a 5K on the roads and a modest effort so it is not much to write about in itself.
For most of the past month, I have been mentally struggling with my running. You could say I am feeling burnt out. And without what I would call ideal races to run, I am lacking a means to really show myself if my hard work is achieving its goal of progress. There is a possibility that next weekend, I might hit a 10 mile rail trail run. I know the trail's surface so it is more like soft road which is still pretty fast. However, I am going to play this week by feel as I need to kick start the positive and I think a bit of rest may been needed. So while I should be running 70 miles this week, if I do not but have quality in what I do, I'll be happy. Today, for example, should have been 20 but I was not going to do anything at all. In the end, I felt relaxed to go out and do 6 with two of those miles on the track very modestly but in a solid 5:27 each.
