Wednesday....Week Five. Anyone who has been in the RR training for the half knows what the 5th week in training for the half means....Hills! At first I was dreading them as I have never done them before! But as usual I faced them with my usual optimizm...I cant believe how much that works! I have been on a positive high for months now and it has really gotten me through some tough times. I have found a few tricks already that get me through the hard times while out there running...Smiling goes a long way! I think that if I am smile right at the moment some else is looking at me having a harder time it will ease thier mind and get them through the rough patch...Also its really hard to have a hard time yourself when your smiling so it works great! I also try to take small moment to enjoy my suroundings like today, on my way down Emily Murphy Hill I was really enjoying the view it was an awesome sight! I am finding it really important to stay positive and sych myself up to the awesomeness to the run! I am looking forward to Tempos tomorrow and the long run on Sunday!

I am finding that all the commitment is paying off...the 5 days a week at first seemed really undoable! but WOW I would definitly recommend doing all the training I have encreased my pace and time already! I can almost comfotably run with my heart rate at 160 bpm...which is awesome! I am really surprised at how far I have come along! with this progress I might even break my goal pace before I even set it! HA!

OOO I almost forgot! when I got home tonight bfore dinner I did the Pilates 20 min workout! it was great although I did have an audiance...Thanks sweetie for the encouagement! but I felt great so I will incorporating this into my workouts!

I also want to mention...for those who read that also run with me :) WOW where the guy with the hot body and great calves and the nicely bronzed skin come from! I sure hope he comes back as WOW he was the reason I made up the second hill!
