39 Days

I can not believe that I am under 40 days to the race!!!

I have had an awesome couple of days! Eating has been really good and exercise has been off the charts excellent!! Yesterday was my first day of the Insanity cycle and I felt great all day. After school, I did a 3 mile run at the park. It was really hot and a pretty good portion of the trail was rocky so I had to walk some (didn't want to twist and ankle or worse, fall down). Even with those 2 factors I averaged a 10:45 pace.

Today was a running day and I repeated the 5 mile course that we have covered the past couple of outings. Each time we have done this course we have gotten faster and today was not different. Our pace was 9:04 today and I was talking quite a lot. I'm encouraged by this! This next month or so is my big push toward 1:20:00 and I think I'm in a good place. I realize there is still a lot of work to be done and I am ready to put in that work. School will be out in a couple of weeks and this will give me more time to devote to my training as well. I'm looking forward to the journey!!
