I'm not sure how to run this weekends race. Do I want a full out effort? Or maybe I'll hang back with my friends and do the run/walk they have been doing for training? I'm not sure how I'll feel after Friday's 16. There is no chance for a PR based on my current running. I found my time from the last time I did the Shuffle and it was stellar. My competitive side will probably come out once I see everyone taking off and then I'll want to push it. We will see though...

All Messed Up
This week makes my return to being a road warrior. That also means this week my running schedule gets all moved around. I am running the Shamrock Shuffle 8k on Sunday but I also have to find time for a long run of 16 miles and the rest of the weeks runs without too much back to back to back. Then I completely threw myself off on Monday when I didn't find any energy or motivation to get out the door for a run. I headed out this morning before work for a speedwork session. Then it started raining and I was stressing myself out about having enough time to get ready for my trip so I just turned around and headed home. Not being in the right mindset can be detrimental. I land at a relatively normal hour in Birmingham so hopefully I will find the time and determination to finish what I started this morning once I get to the hotel. At this rate I'll be lucky if I get any miles done this week!
