Adding miles back to my weeks and long runs has been hard lately. Mentally I find it hard to motivate myself to lace up and go out there for the time it takes. It has been hard...physically and mentally, but I have done it. Each Saturday I have added gradually to my miles getting ready to run Newport in June. I have made it a slow increase and it will continue to be that way but I am doing it...doing what needs to get done so that I am ready for race day. Discipline has been something I have learned since I was young as a child and then college athlete. It isn't always the thing I want to do but it is what needs to get done. In the end, it is always worth it!!! Flex your discipline this week...you will thank yourself later!
