Today I worked out alone. In the rain. Slick roads. Humid air. Gray sky.
Time to focus. Warm-up and then find my pace for 5 x1 miles at an 8:05-8:10 pace. I have been consistently running faster than suggested and feeling great. I want to achieve this feeling on race day. To race smart. I have that 3:40, Boston qualifier in my sites. Perhaps on race day I will be the “silent but deadly” runner leaving runners in my wake.
Training hard, training smart . . . Time will tell what I’m really made of on race day.
