NOTE TO SELF: STOP UNDERESTIMATING YOURSELF

Last week I officially started my training for the year, and I was surprisingly happy with how it turned out. I came down with a cold on Monday, and I’m just now getting over it today (Sunday).  So, my week definitely started a little rocky.  On Tuesday I had a hard tempo workout, but I was still able to hit the times I was supposed to.  Wednesday was interesting as I got back into the sprint mentality and sped through a few sets of 60m runs.  By Friday I was feeling pretty good about myself.  Friday is our hard workout day, and I went into it feeling both anxious about how it would go, and excited to see just where my body was really at.  My running partner that day was my friend, Maya, and she was pretty anxious, too, but we pumped ourselves up and got after it.
