something of a roll
Of course, the minute I blog about it, it'll dissipate, poof!
Over the past ten days or so, something's changed a little with my training, or rather the way I think about whatever it is Dror has me doing on a given day. Or, rather, the way I don't think about it so much. I have finally gotten used to the across-the-board drop in easy pace, and can settle into 8:30 or 8:29 without much thought or effort. Compare this to "gah! omg omg omg 8:30 at the slowest!!!! how can I do that on an easy run?" which was the way I started out every non-workout a couple weeks ago. I'm not even dreading the workouts as much as I had been; I know that unless I'm having an outright miserable day, I'm capable of whatever Dror put on the schedule, and the number - whatever it is - is nothing to be afraid of. ("Hi, I'm a small chunk of marathon-pace at the end of an easy run. I'm here to help."). Something about this training seems to agree with me. I just hope the mileage is enough.

Joe, you seem to be on a roll! I'm so glad to hear it, especially w/ how difficult the past couple months have been training wise. Who is the Dror coincidentally? Anyhow, I'm happy to hear things are going well...keep posting and keep up the good work.
