The RACE TO 100... Episode 6.
I get down and dirty with the training.
MURPH 2 times during the week, a 10 mile run, and a 21 mile run.
21 miles is the longest training run to date for me. It was BRUTAL... Insane humidity and some brutal heat. I went through over a gallon of water and was still dehydrated. Let's just say the last couple miles SUCKED!
The point is this... that in order to grow, to get better, you have to embrace the suck. Let's just say you will have to go to the pain cave during training and during the event.
During the event, I'll be breaking barriers mile after mile. The longest distance I have been during any event is 50 miles.
Think about this. During any run that is longer than you have run before is uncharted territory. You don't know what your body will feel like, what your mind will be thinking, you just don't know any of it.
So in life and in training keep pushing yourself into uncharted territory so you can grow.
