3/11 - 3/17

I managed to log 22:11 miles this week. They mostly felt pretty good too. I have increased my stretching and I believe it is beginning to help me with running.

Sunday 3.10 miles
Tuesday 4 miles
Thursday 5 miles
Saturday 10 miles.

The ten miler this morning was great. I felt good. The sun was shining, and after 5 miles, I took off my jacket and wrapped it around my waist. It felt great to be out there in the sun. I repeated some affirmations to myself when I was challenged... like "I am a runner," & "I am a marathoner." I took that advice from one of the books I am reading.

I do believe I am going to be able to do this half-marathon. This morning, I tried to imagine what it will feel like to be running down Colfax Avenue - I am really looking forward to it.

I love it that you're confident you can run the race. I've been getting over a cold and my miles are way down this week ... but I know the past several weeks of training will carry me through. My first 10-miler was supposed to have been Saturday ... I hope when I do it next week it feels as good as yours!

Thanks for stopping by! Sounds like you're doing great so far. You'll be flying through that finish in no time.

Your doing great.

You can do it.

That's funny, because sometimes when I'm out running I do the same affirmations! Yes, I AM a runner, even if I don't yet have a runner's body. Seriously, that is what I think to myself. LOL!!

You are doing awesome!!! Keep it up!!!
