"I am not a very fast runner. Can I run a half marathon?"
When these thoughts enter my brain, I've been trying to stop them and replace with positive thoughts.
"I am strong. I can run 4 miles without walking. I have discipline. I can do anything with God's help."
Monday, I ran my normal easy four mile run. Lately, I've been trying to beat my virtual partner that's on my garmin. I should come up with a name for my vp... Anyway, some runs I do well, other runs, not so well. I was a worried that this would be a difficult run especially after my very slow 8.5 mile run on Saturday.
Monday, I set a new PR (Personal Record) for myself.

First time that I broke the 11:00 / mile average pace!
I'm looking forward to my speedwork tomorrow. The plan is:
1 mile warmup
1 mile 10:22 pace
.5 mile jog
repeat two more times
1 mile cool down.
