Like I've mentioned lately, the running training for the Wasatch Woman Thanksgiving Point 6K walk/10K run went downhill when school started again. But I still exercise on my Gazelle strider so my muscles, heart and lungs are still on top of things, more or less.
I was curious today how my jogging skills are, what level I'm at one week before the race. So when I found out that Zen wouldn't have to go in to work until 10 am, I ran 3 miles on the treadmill at the gym. It was amazing how easy the first mile was. Then, the real concentration had to kick in. But I did it! That 6k is going to be really hard, I just know it, and not only because it will be closer to 4 miles than 3, but also because the terrain will be harder.
But, you know what? I'm gonna do it, I WILL run that race. Queen Vee is right, I should still challenge myself. It will feel great! So, I'll see you Utah ladies at the finish line a week from Saturday. I'll be slow, but I will finish the race.
