Thanks to all of your comments and also to Coach (who set me straight but good), I am back where I need to be, not minding my pace because I am building STRENGTH and ENDURANCE.
Here is to being reminded of the big picture.
Also I have been inspired today by reading the race reports of Calyx (San Francisco Half Marathon) and RBR (Barb's Race Half Iron). Run along and read these. These girls are showing everyone how it's DONE!
Of course I am enjoying another rest day. OH yes! Time for LUNCH!
Have a GREAT week everyone!
