Got to admit that some days the weight of the miles are pretty heavy. Truth be told, I don’t really love running for the act of running itself, but for the challenge, discipline, and knowing I am capable. Improvement.
As I face my countdown to this end goal, I’m both thrilled and bored. There is a huge load of miles in a relatively short span I have to power through. But the miles are repetitive. I can’t go too far for my daily runs. My days off don’t line up well with races and ability to go to them. So it’s the same basic paths over and over.
That makes it another kind of challenge.
