I skipped the 4 miler last weekend. I just needed a break. Neither my husband nor I could even remember the last Saturday where I did not run. So that was it. I knew with my mental state waning, I wouldn’t race well anyway. Too bad for me….it turned out to be the perfect race weather. Oh well.
Now, with 3 weeks till my half marathon, I am trying to muster some mental fortitude. The weather has been great, and I should be pumped to run. I am actually pumped to run, just not really to TRAIN. I debate on taking a break in May or waiting until June, as I hate to take a break in such great running weather when we know how the Houston summers go.
What helps you get pumped for a big race when you aren’t in the right frame of mind?
I am hoping for a small PR, but we’ll see how the next weeks go and then how the weather is in DC! I am excited to go and be a part of this race, so at this point, I am just trying to think of all the positives, stick with my training plan, and remind myself this is the last race I am signed up for for this training period!
