Training

Reflection- 15k racing boom or a bust

Sunday is the day- I will be racing the Hot Chocolate 15k in Seattle. I am actually quite scared. My training has not gone to plan due to moving and injury but I now I will finish and most likely PR.

My A goal is 1:32 or faster by B goal is 1:38 or faster. I know both are achievable but if I don’t get either my attempt at 2:14 or faster for the NYC Half in 2 weeks is a bust. Part of me wants to get this PR and hope for the best for NYC. But, because I do have 4 more halfs scheduled this year a sub-2 or at least sub-2:05 half can happen this year.

Yes, everyone needs to be as worry-free and happy as Cooper!

After writing all of the recaps for the last few races (don’t worry they will be posted soon!), I realized that coming off of a severe injury is hard. Six months to get in shape might not be enough time and I┬áhave to accept that.

So, here’s to hoping the weather cooperates this Sunday for that 1:32 PR or bust!
