I have a few and I need to get them off my chest.
So I got out for a run last night. I last ran a week ago but I replaced it with hiking for the weekend. I figured I was still using my leg muscles like a warrior so I wouldn't lose any ground, I would just change it up a bit. So besides the speed I lost once it got dark and I didn't want to get killed I was super happy with it. It was a run 10 minutes, walk 5 minutes and then run 10 minutes. I only struggles in the 2nd 10 minutes with about 4 minutes left. It happened to fall on a slow uphill that just felt like it went for every so I peeked at the time but kept running. I try not to watch the clock. It makes it seem like it is going on forever. I also found myself with some distance left so I added a couple more minutes of running at the end just because I could and I still felt good. It is breaking the rules of the Couch to 5K but only a little.
So this leads to the problem. I think I am getting addicted to the good feeling of running. I know, right??!! Crazy isn't it?? I need to take today off but I am already looking forward to tomorrows run. I get out there and I am psyched. My clothes are fitting differently and I want it. I want muscles and skinny and health. I feel like every step I take is getting me closer to all of these things.
I am also excited. I can't explain it but I'm excited by the slow accomplishment I am achieving. I luckily have found a couple of nuts who let me blab about it so I can release some of my excitement and I try to hold back with the people that want to show me their latest chocolate recipes. I guess I have to respect their excitement too.
So to fan the flames I found out I am getting a gift from my cousin that will put me closer to a brand new pair of running sneakers. Silly to some but wicked pissah to this girl.
So if you see me and can tolerate it ask me about my running. I'll be happy to tell you about it.
