It was a quite busy week! I had a wedding this weekend, more than a few late work days, a doctor’s appointment and an acupuncture appointment. When I have late work days, I find it so hard to get up the next morning to get to the gym. My mind takes a lot longer to unwind, and I cannot fall asleep as I normally do. Sad to say that I only made two of my scheduled three runs this week, so I was a little nervous about Saturday’s 3.5 mile long run.
Still… I knew I had to get it in. I was planning to run outside again this week, but when my face looked like this from the wind…
I decided to head to the gym.
The first mile was a little rough, but the second time I looked down at the display I was at 2.75. Almost two miles had gone by without me realizing, and I was still going strong. At that point, I told myself to go for 4 miles.
And I did. And it was easy. I don’t know what happened, but it was awesome. I had on some pretty mellow music compared my normal upbeat tunes. My mind completely zoned out and my legs just kept on moving. I feel like I could have gone for a while. It was such a new and great feeling!
I am actually looking forward to running now, which I was not sure I would ever feel. Mile 4 was a big step for me when I created my training plan. My next big milestone = Mile 7. I’ll see you in a few weeks, Mr. Mile 7. Get ready.
Question of the Day:
Do you have any big life or fitness milestones that you are looking forward to reaching?
Today I leave you with Sophia Grace. She has nothing to do with running, but made me laugh and I had to share. The Husband and I met some friends for dinner on Friday. They could not stop talking about this little girl that was on the Ellen show. We looked her up on YouTube (she has a BOAT-LOAD of videos). It is hilarious. She will make you smile for sure.
