KEY WORKOUT (at Lake O'Neil!)
K - Kick hard, because you've only got so many of these per week (usually two - so make 'em count).
E - Eeeewww. I think I just stepped on something really smelly and really really dead.
Y - Yikes. If I thought the four minute piece hurt, then I'm in some serious trouble for the five minute effort.
W - Want. You have to want it, believe it, feel it - in order to achieve it.
O - Ouch. No one said this would be easy.
R - Running. Running, running, running. Keep...running...running....
K - Kona. Remember it, because soon it will be here.
O - Ouch. Oops. Already taken. Ow. Ow. Ow. Hamstrings have been engaged!
U - Undeniably, I have done little running speed work this year. Something about 'strong, steady, solid' and IM... And I can feel. every. single. 'fast-ish'. step. I think I already used ouch.
T - Treasure. Treasure the workout, treasure the moment, treasure the fact that I'm able to do this. Nope - not always easy.
But the GREAT things in life rarely are.
