10 x Mile today averaged 4:55 pace.  Felt great…maybe I should have tried something like that before Detroit hehe.

I have never done a work out like this before in my life.  I don’t know if I have ever gone past 6 miles in a repeat sessions.

When I was told what the workout would be, I instantly began getting scared and talking myself out of it…maybe only doing 6 or 8, but not 10, no way.  Then mile after mile I kept telling myself I can do this.  Think of how strong this will make me; mentally and physically.  Lap after lap I just kept chugging along and gaining more confidence.

This just goes to show how easy and quickly we can talk our selves out of something that we might be just a little afraid of.  Like a first time runner telling them selves “There is no way I could ever run a 5k.”

Dive in head first…the mind gives up before the body.

Happy Trails
