And I don’t care how cheesy it sounds. I ROCKED 6 miles tonight and loved every single moment of the run.
It took me 5 weeks to get this feeling back. I’ve been doing my best on the training schedule. Making no excuses and working hard to be flexible yet consistent with my workouts.
It’s paying off big time.
I feel amazing!
Today I came home from Mom’s around 3, exhausted! I took a 2 hour nap, cooked up some zucchini soup (more on that later!) helped put the kids to bed and headed out.
I toyed with the idea of putting it off tomorrow but decided not to give myself ANY excuses.
I set out to do a 6 mile loop with no thoughts of speed or time. I just got lost in my thoughts and trotted away. About a mile in I realized I wasn’t winded, I wasn’t tired, I was just effortless running, like I used to.
Once I hit 4 miles, Eye of the Tiger came on the iPod and it made me chuckle. I STILL felt the same way I did after the first mile. It felt like the last 5 weeks of training are finally paid off.
Just look at this RUN!
When I came home and synched the run, I was presented with this…
I know you probably think I’m annoying and crazy for saying this over and over but I still can’t believe it….
I’m a RUNNER!
I really am.
Ok.. got to go. Need a shower before bed. :)
