After a few short months of hard training, I’m already back to taper mode. I had my last long run this morning that went very well and now I have two weeks until race day.
A lot has changed since my last training cycle and now I feel like I am becoming a well rounded runner. I’ve started doing back-to-back long runs as I lead up to my 100 mile race. My body is handling them surprisingly very well this time. My daily runs are incrementally getting longer, which I love. Getting to run more and more on a daily basis is part of my life vision that I want to achieve. I’ve added jump roping to my strength routine and have seen nothing but positive improvements from it. And probably most importantly, my diet has been brought to the forefront of becoming healthier.
I have never felt this ready for a race before. Everything recently seems to have come together nicely and it just seems like it all is just ‘clicking’ for me running wise. Depending on how I feel come race day and the uncontrollable elements playing their part, I’m hoping to have a great race. Now I just need to focus on staying relaxed and fresh, while staying in a patient mindset.
Running is what I want to spend my life doing. Slowly I’m shaping that dream life. How do you want to live yours?
