Inside - Out
Months ago, when I began all of this training, I remember reviewing the week ahead over and over as if to memorize it.I loved knowing what was ahead of me and I still do.Strangely though I seem to let the days and training session slip up on me and I have found myself reviewing only what I have for the day I am in.
Tuesday Coach had me doing a trainer session with a 30 minute run.No problem since I love the trainer time and it keeps me out of the baking sun.So I gather all of my things and start right into the warm-up.It is at this point that I am “really” focusing on what he has in store for me.Let’s just say that he turned my legs inside out and I was crying “mercy” before it was all over!How in the world I was even able to run following was also pretty amazing.In fact, the run felt good from the beginning and very much in control throughout. SCORE!!!
Now what other suffering/magic does coach have in store for my last BIG training week?Heading to review the plan (again)now……
