"Successful people do what unsuccessful people don't dare."
Don't know who said this, but I like it.
An interesting thing, is that I looked at my Garmin only once during my 10K race last Sunday. When I reached the 4K marker, I wanted to check whether my Garmin was on track and it was beeping 4K, right on. For some reason, I never even thought to check my Garmin. I'm a little surprised, because on my training runs, I tend to check on a pretty regular basis. I guess I was really focused. My pace didn't vary much either and never slowed. I had my fuel belt and so didn't need to stop for water or Gatorade. I even forgot to stop the Garmin after crossing the finish line. All I can remember is that I was running and feeling good. Please, may I feel so focused and good when I run my first ever half-marathon in less than 3 weeks!
Today, I once again chose to complete my intervals on the Treadmill. I find it easier to control the speed. I doubled up and did 3 X 800m intervals (up from 400m last week) and near the end I did an extra minute at 7.5min/mile...happy! Then I did my gym workout, which I enjoy, and I held my plank for 2 minutes...more happy :)
Okay, almost bedtime...I'm being good about getting to bed around 10pm...athletes need their rest ;)
