Go for it.
Thanks to my amazing fiance this is happening like every day!
I’m not going to lie, I really wasn’t excited about it.
I could feel myself getting really emotional, negative, and lethargic. It’s dead week and I have a bunch of papers to write and exams to study for. I did not want to run. I didn’t really enjoy my half marathon, to be honest. It was hot, long, and my music was on Pandora which was just a little off that day. I’m proud of my accomplishment because I overcame, but I didn’t end the run feeling like I wanted to do it again.
So today I decided I was just going to go. I needed to get off my lazy butt. I just went. No mileage requirement, no time requirement or restriction, just GO.
So I did.
Pandora was ON POINT today, it was fantastic! I was mouthing the words and jamming along and just trotting away, really enjoying my run and releasing excess stress.
I made people smile or giggle or didn’t even phase them. I wasn’t phased either way, I was just so incandescently happy.
It was FANTASTIC and I’m so glad I pushed myself to do it.
I still LOVE running. :) my heart (and body) are happy happy happy!
…I ended up doing 4 miles in 36 minutes flat. Good pace for me :)
doing this now. Thought I was through it, just goes to show it’s a journey!
