From "I can't" to "I CAN"

5:30 a.m. "I can't get out of bed yet."

5:45 a.m. "I still can't get out of bed yet."

6:10 a.m. "I guess I can get out of bed now...."

6:45 a.m. (After one mile warm-up) "I can't run fast today, maybe I should postpone speedwork."

7:00 a.m. (After 2.3 miles warm-up and a bathroom break) "I guess I can try to get up to speed for some half mile repeats on the track...."

7:25 a.m. (After 4 x 800 plus recovery jogs) "I CAN do three more of these."

7:40 a.m. (After 6 x 800 at 7:45-7:59 paces) "I CAN do the last one faster than the rest!

7:45 a.m. "I DID the last half mile at 7:30 pace! So I CAN go to Starbucks and still get home in time for work."

8:00 a.m. "I CAN pack up my breakfast and lunch, take a shower and fix my hair, get dressed and still get to work by 9 a.m."

9:05 a.m. "I CAN rush into the courthouse and not be too embarrassingly late."

TOTAL - 8.02 miles, 8:58 overall average pace, with 7 x 800 (half miles) at 7:59 - 7:30 paces.
