Getting A Little More Into It
We have had some decent mornings in central Florida, and I was hoping today's would be the same. It was... sort of. It was starting to get hot around around 7:00 when I left for my run, but it still wasn't too bad and there was a slight breeze. I'm just hoping we don't completely fall back into a typical Florida summer weather pattern... I'm so sick of hot mornings.
I have to say though, I'm so happy about my walking pace. This year I really focused on keeping my walk below, or right around a 16 minute pace. That is one thing I have constantly been successful with all summer. I know that even if I can't finish Lumiere's Challenge by running, I should be far enough ahead, and my walk should be quick enough that I will finish regardless.
I'm still a bit nervous about the race. I keep thinking it's next week, but I still have more time to get ready. Of course we also have the Food and Wine festival starting, a family trip during the festival (which means lots of eating), and hopefully nicer weather will get here.
I just need to keep reminding myself to stay positive, drink more water, eat a bit better, and trust myself. I will get through this, I will finish my return to runDisney races, and eventually I will conquer all of my running goals! One step at a time, one mile at a time!
