I’ve been thinking seriously about going for a PR but I’m scared to even set that goal. Is that weird? It’s easier for me to take the slow road and just finish but after being around the amazing, inspirational, motivational and not to mention freaking fast ladies at Hood to Coast, I can’t help but think about pushing myself just a little harder.
I was, by far, the slowest girl in my van and I was ok with that to an extent. I know I’d have a LONG way to go to get to their level but I couldn’t help but wonder what it would be like. My fastest half time is about 2:03.
As I was running yesterday, I found myself challenging myself to run faster..beat my time on the last mile and surprisingly found I finished with 2 sub 9 min miles. That’s when I started thinking it was truly possible.
So I pose the following questions:
1. Have you ever not set a goal because you were seriously afraid you wouldn’t achieve?
2. I’m kinda new to this whole speed training thing, any training tips for trying to achieve this goal?
