As you can tell, I finally was able to get a normal mileage this week! I felt like myself, I felt like I had control of my legs again and I felt ready for Richomnd. The biggest struggle last week was trusting that I had enough fitness to still run a respectable race in Richmond. I have been focusing a lot this week on mental strategies that will help me believe that I'm still in shape and have put in the right amount of work to race well. The workouts that I posted this week helped tremendously in my mental outlook and confidence in myself. I was able to run 1000m repeats basically solo at my target half pace with a very short jog rest. I followed that up with a great track / tempo workout on Saturday with Billy as my pacemaker. I'm feeling really good about the next six weeks of training and am really excited to toe the line at Richmond!
