Uggg. I am really having my doubts about being able to run this half marathon. It is now about 10 weeks away and I am struggling to complete 3 mile runs in this heat and humidity. I have not had a good run in a while. They say that training in this weather is good conditioning for the fall, but I really need to have some good runs to help me feel like this is a goal I can actually accomplish.
I do however have a training plan in place and I just completed the first week. The goal was 13 miles over 4 runs. Unfortunately because of work and the extreme heat I had to skip one run and made it only 9.8 miles this week. Not a real confidence booster as I start to ramp up the mileage.
Tomorrow is a 5 mile run and I am going to do my best to get up and run as early as possible.
