This usually happens to me mid-late summer, or in Fall. I have a stretch of not wanting to run with poor performance, then a few low humidity days with cool mornings come. I then feel like a new man.
I busted out a new pair of Asics Kahanas ($49 at Sports Authority), and comfortably ran 10 yesterday and today at an 8:30 pace. It felt easy, refreshing, and energizing.
This weekend will be my weekend to nail the 100k. Forecast looks perfect. I am eating better, and am somewhat rested.
Depending on how the training run goes will dictate my race strategy.
Watching the olymics helps get the game face on as well. Who would have ever thought that swimming could be so exciting? My can't get enough of Michael Phelps.
3 1/2 weeks to go.
Off to another fun filled sales blitz week (in the twin cities :))
