so to make myself feel tough and to remind me of how much stronger I’m getting, I’m painting one nail this tough and mean shade of blue-black each time that I complete a tough training run. as you can see, I’ve got one really tough run done so far. that 12 miler that sucked so hard. there might be a new black nail tomorrow if my tempo run tonight guts me.
update on the cross-training dilema: I’ve decided to count cross-training towards a short run during the week if I’m feeling rough. this week, 50mins of soccer, 1 hour of shovelling (the whole driveway by myself!!) and 2 hours of volleyball are counting as Monday’s 5M run. so there.
