It’s so hot, I’m dying.
My coach said that you can train and put in the work, but if you’re not confident you’re not going to achieve. The mental stuff is all that can hold you back; you can train really hard but you have to stay mentally tough, mentally focused and be mentally confident about what you’ve trained for and what you’ve set your mind to.

First normal set of runs in forever! (Darn stomach flu) Yesterday, I did a speed workout on the treadmill. I did a mile warmup, 4 sets of 55’s, and a little under a half a mile cooldown. It ended up being around 6 miles. For my slow five minutes, I did about an 8 minute pace. Then, for my fast five minutes, I did a little under 6:00 pace! It was rough on that janky little treadmill. After, I lifted for thirty minutes and topped off the day with five minutes of core. Today, I just had to do an uptempo five mile run. I did a mile warmup, and then proceeded to do my five milez at like a 6:40 average pace. My stomach didn’t hurt thank god, but my legs were pretty soree. Now I’m in the car making the journey back to the mitten🙈

I’m really not ready to come home. But I am ready to start competing and push my limits to find out what I’m made of💪 if I ran a 5:13 mile with a hurt achilles in early march… What can I do in May? 5:05? 5:00? I’ll do anything to accomplish my goals… I want it as badly as I want to breathe.

Today was a good day. I’m finally over my stomach flu and able to enjoy Florida! I did my long run today of 8 miles at about a 7:05 average pace. Holy cow, it was hot! I went at 9 which in retrospect is probably way too late, but break is also about catching up on sleep.

Forget stardust—you are iron. Your blood is nothing but ferrous liquid. When you bleed, you reek of rust. It is iron that fills your heart and sits in your veins. And what is iron, really, unless it’s forged?

You are iron.

And you are strong.
