Hoosier Half Marathon Training, W293487913ckb
Oh hey. I didn’t see you there, tumblr.
Still around. Still doing damn things even though they’re exceedingly difficult. My six-mile “long” run today was just torture, and my six-mile tempo on Thursday? Pffft. I was barely lucky to eke out two. I don’t know if I’m having an off week or if all the emotional and mental stuff is starting to catch up with me, but either way…it makes for some shitty runs that I’ve been dreading like crazy.
I am ever so slowly, and never in any sort of linear progression, getting a handle on my shit. It is taking no small amount of tears, reflection, and making choices that earnestly scare me (some that have turned out to be good, others that I’m still ambivalent about). I’m still not particularly hopeful about the future. But I’m finding myself paralyzed by fear less and less, which is allowing me to make these final steps toward my qualifying exams.
For now, all I’m focusing on is pushing until March 13. After that, I can evaluate what my next step needs to be.
