Today was hard . . .

So after a 3-week vacation, my endurance has taken a hit. I’m back at running an easy *cough* . . . 13-minute mile. That’s not to say I can’t push myself harder and crank out something faster, but we’ll say that I’m sitting at 13 minutes. At least that’s what I did today. Pretty bummed about that, especially since I’ve been progressing so well! Sigh. Note to self actually try to work out a little on vacation. Anyway I found a quotation that I love that will help get past this perceived “rut”:

“There will be a day when you can no longer do this. Today is not that day.”

Thanks Frayed Laces!

Sometime soon, I’ll feel like a rockstar on my workouts again, but for now at least I’m better than when I started.

What do you do when you’re not as confident? Do you have a process?

In other news I have a 5k next week! It’s the American Fork Canyon Half Marathon and 5k. I’m excited about it, but I have a feeling I won’t be as fast as my 5k in May. No worries, though. I just want to have fun, and the race atmosphere is certainly that.

Which races are you running this weekend or next?


p.s. I’m getting new shoes soon! I’m so excited!
