After weeks and weeks of mostly lackluster and "oh my god why can't we just walk instead," runs I finally had a good one today. And a fast one*.
Just when I was getting ready to throw in the towel on a sub 4:00 Marathon in March/April... there is now a SLIGHT glimmer of hope**. Does this mean I'm back to following the training plan***? Ehhh... not exactly.
* Okay, so it was only for 4 miles. But still... I kicked that 4-milers ass.
** Yes, I realize how ridiculous it is to get so amped up after a 4 mile run. But dude... it was that good!
***Someone explain to me why I continually spend hours on coming up with a training plan to follow... only to not follow it for more than 3 days? Speedwork, Hillwork? Ehhh.. who needs it, right? gulp.
