NO run today. Feeling overtired and just plain lousy on all fronts. Maybe a day off will help.. Darkhorse out.

I wanted to ask you a question, if that is ok with you? I am feeling a little over whelmed. I am running the Salt Lake 1/2 marathon next week and I would like some advice on keeping a positive attitude toward reaching my goal of running a 1:28 half which is like a 6:45 pace. I am having a hard running at that pace and I need some advice on keeping a positive attitude. Any help would be great. I hope this makes sense.

Just remember that no matter your time, Your family will not look at you any differently as long as you give best efforts. Start out at a pace that is still somewhat conversational, It should feel comfortably hard. Understand what I'm saying? Do not attack the uphills and flow efficiently on the down. I always practiced my goal pace every other day for a mile or so at the end of the run and this helped me tremendously in my confidence. Is this goal realistic? And have you come close to this anywhere else?
