We’re are coming down to the wire, people! This coming weekend will be my 12 miler run and then it’s all down hill. The good news is: I’m definitely feeling like I’m at the peak of my training. Every week has been better than the next so far (*knock on wood*) and I am feeling better than I have in a long time. I FINALLY feel like I am where I was prior to both babies and am ready to blow some times out of the water.
I am a little nervous about my 12-miler though. I haven’t actually done a 12 mile run in training in YEARS. I had been running for time for while (which I still really enjoy doing) but I know that I really do need to get a 12-miler in before my next half. I really want to practice my race day strategy, but I’m super nervous about it. I know that it will definitely give me some confidence going in to race day, but I know that it’s a very TOUGH strategy. And definitely one I DO need to PRACTICE prior to the race. Hopefully the cooler temperatures this week will make a 12 mile run a little easier. I’m OVER this heat + humidity…
