But this week is my 20 miler. And I am fighting off a cold, and haven't slept much this week. And I did not get my butt to the gym, or outside. And I'm running with one of my fast friends... I'm going to have to insist on starting slow, and staying slow the first half, and then seeing how it goes the second half. I think part of my marathon downfall was starting too fast, when negative splits are how I usually run.
Part of me is excited about this... Maybe this time I'll PR, and even if I don't, three marathons is pretty bad ass ;) Part of me even thinks, I could do these sorts of long runs all year round!
But I also know there are a lot of things I've put on the back burner because of running, and I need to get those things done too. There's just so much STUFF going on. School year coming to an end, chores around the apartment are piling up, and other commitments.
