Well today's run was so much better than last week. But it still was not the best. I am still really hitting a wall at mile 8 and struggling to get to mile 10. It just seems like I cannot do more than 10. I don't know why I have such a block against anything over 10. I need to be running about 12 or better right now in my training and I am not.
Well in the wake of 2 not so great running weeks my running buddy and I are taking a new approach. I am lucky to have such a good running buddy (who knows what she is doing.) We are going to do our next long run doing 4 minute run and 1 minute walk. She thinks I have been going out without enough walk breaks in the beginning and becoming too tired by the end, so if I need it or not I will be taking a walk break every 4 minutes.
I really hope this works out because I am officially signed up for a marathon in December and I am just going to push through, I just hope that I have good runs because this could be miserable if the runs suck for the next 3 months.
Here's trying a new approach and hoping that it works.
