Sometimes, I compare myself to others and spiral into negative thoughts about myself. Here’s how I get out of it!
Shall I compare thee?
In 10 days time I’ll be running my first 10 mile race. the Frank Duffy 10 mile, part of the Dublin City Marathon Race Series. It’s also the longest race I’ll be running since I began Project Speedy. I know how 41 weeks of training in my legs.
Has it really been that long? When I decided to concentrate on speedwork training, last November, I wanted to give myself at least a year to conquer my goals. 41 weeks later and here I am. Boy, does time ever fly when you’re having fun
Last year the Rock ‘n Roll Half Marathon here in Dublin was my first ever half marathon. This year, it was my first time volunteering at a race. It was a fantastic experience and more than anything it really opened my eyes to what it takes to put on a race. As a runner, and racer myself, the day gave me a whole new appreciation for race organizers and volunteers.
