My Special Run
Saturday, November 09, 2013
All my runs are special because I am not really a runner (yet!) and every time I get outside and run, I feel really good about myself and I feel like telling everyone about it (sorry spark friends).
Today's run was even more special because of the fact that I really did not feel like doing it - but I did it anyway
. I woke up feeling a little off today, not physically though. I just had very little motivation. I did day 10 of 30 day shred level 3 (so that is done!) then did a bit of walk at home. I knew I was scheduled for a run but I started with the excuses: 'I'm too tired today', 'I have to go to work so I need to conserve my energy', 'I'm feeling a bit hungry', 'It looks like it's just about to rain.'
Eventually I just forced myself to lace up my running shoes and go! I told myself that if I still felt tired after two laps, I would just go back to the house and get ready for work.
Well, I ran for an hour. It wasn't great, I didn't get 'high' like I usually do when I run, but I felt good about my effort and I'm glad I did it.
