Making the impossible... possible.

That title sounds like an American Idol single or something, doesn't it?

Anyway...Today, after work… I will attempt the impossible.

I am going to try to run 16-17 miles this afternoon.

What? You say I'm crazy??? (Heh, I guess you really do know me, huh?).

But, yes... 16-17 miles today.

Yes! On a weekday.
Yes! After a long day of work.
Yes! I have my doubts that I’ll be able to do complete it.

Remember the last time I tried to complete a long run on a weekday? Yeah, that one didn't turn out so well. And that was only 12 miles!

I’ve tried to prep well, though. I’ve been pounding the water all day. And I ate a healthy lunch (a big salad with lots of bread). So, I should be ready. I just have to get mentally into it. I have to WANT to do this.

It’s a pretty nice day outside, which helps. But, running for 2.5 hours after work? I am so not looking forward to this. Oh well, at least, I’ll have it over with early in the week, right?

Yes, I can do it. Yes, I can do it. Yes, I can do it. I gotta get psyched.
