Dear Brain...

I have a favor to ask. Can you just shut down when I run? or lie to my legs and tell them everything is OK and the pain you're feeling is nothing to be concerned about. How ever you want to do it, it's up to you, but any negative thoughts you have about what I'm doing to my legs and lungs just keep them to yourself!
It's just that this marathon training has been going pretty well and I'm hoping to do something above even my own expectations when I started training some 14 weeks ago. I know that I've had a minor training set back lately, but if you do this one thing for me, I'll never ask for anything from you again.




  1. I hear you about the disconnect between the mind and the legs. I think music can help or a running partner

  2. I struggled as well yesterday, I was still a little sore from the weekend, and the treadmill sucks. You can do it, you are so close to the goal, keep it up!

  3. BDD, Maybe I can get a running partner that plays music. I'll look into that. Jamie, thanks for the support, it's always appreciated and good luck with your indoor tri this weekend!
