The not so pretty part of training sometimes are the parts you don’t hear about most the times. I’m 7 weeks into my pursuit of something unheard of, I finally hit a breaking point. On my latest early morning long run the armor finally cracked, my mind went, the legs went, and I turned in extremely early at mile 6 of 18. Just completely lost and broken. It got to the point where I questioned the passion, started rewriting the plan I spent hours and days constructing. Double guessing everything. No sugar coated bullshit, the mental mindset has been an absolute nightmare when it’s come to running lately. This morning I woke up to a new day, did a lot of self reflection. And I kept coming back to the same thing over and over... this isn’t how you were built, and stopping what you’re building isn’t you. Long story short, enter Week 8 of the plan, the one originally built to bring me to the elite level. Going to be playing a little bit smarter, but here to dominate the game regardless. No matter what, even if I crash and burn, it’ll be done the way it’s supposed to. Beyond lucky for the support in my corner that keeps me sane.
