I started reading the book of The Little Book of Talent. It said, if you want to be successful,The Tip#1 is: Stare at Who you want to become.And Tip#2: Spend Fifteen Minutes a Day EngravingThe Skill of Your Brain. I like the way they calledit Engraving Methods.
For last a few Half Marathon Races, I did usethis Engraving Method. I planned ahead about what pace I should use for each mile, when I should drink water, when I should take gel,and my goal of each race. And I managed to complete 1 minute faster than each previous PR.
Though I weighted only 171.8 pounds now,and I completed two 20miles run, one 22 miles run,I still did not have a very solid plan for the upcoming Dec Marathon Debut. I think I should "engraving" the pace, the water and the gel,so that I can have a consitent race. Among the3 long runs, the last weekend one is still the best, though I was totally disappointed withthe last a few miles. But the pace is 9:20,and I can complete the marathon about 4 hours 10 minutes if I can keep that pace.
