Well, hellooooo there! So, I am sitting here at the computer facing the reality that sometimes goals need to be revised. No biggie. But here is what lead to my “revisions…” Basically, I have decided to go ahead and run Broad Street on Sunday as planned, but instead of my anticipated finish of sub 1:30 (10 miles at ~9 min each) I am hoping for a sub 1:40. Yes, this is a lot slower than I otheriwse would have liked to finish (10 minute miles) but given my current situation, I have decided that reframing my thoughts surrounding Broad Street is not only super healthy for me but realistic and will make the event more fun for me. Yesterday I tried a run out again, and while I ran an uber rolling hills course (Norristown Farm Park) my four miler was less than ideal for several reasons (see above)…
Anyway, I ended up a sweaty mess as you can see, and headed home for some of this:
Chill-axin while watching the FLYERS! (GO FLYERS!) Excuse the pic of my THUTT as Skinny Runner would say, but I had to show off my new Jamaica shorts!
Hanging out with the pups (here is Addie, my lil’ Ragga Muffin- hehe see her shirt!)…So, my question is: Do you revise your goals or do you just plug forward and conquer? I find that running, like most other things (and like life) is SO mental that revising goals can be VERY healthy for me! Thoughts? Toodles!
