“I’m a slow runner because I’m thirty pounds overweight.” Am I making excuses?
- when I lose the weight I will get faster
- I’m just neglecting speedwork
- I’m genetically predisposed to be a slow runner
- all of the above?
I feel like this training schedule has my body teetering at its injury threshold (thanks to Lesley for teaching me this concept).
I’ve gained precisely 3 lbs since starting the training. I’m currently a happy camper at 155 but really looking forward to a “normal” BMI come mid-June. Looks like I could have registered as Athena for this race.
