The grind has begun. You are now into week 7. You can feel the strength. The easy runs are better now and faster. You like the challenges, althought you slightly curse your coach and or @runblogrun during 20 times a minute, or five hilly miles.
It is rainy today in Wisconsin. I am taking my umbrella as I do my walk today. I find that my 45 minute walks, and 2 hour walks do similar things as when I was running 60 miles a week in high school or 120-140 miles a week in college.
The build up is important. Your body can handle the challenges that your spirit questions.
Be brave. Take the challenges.
