If you are on my facebook you probably saw that Sunday was a horrible run! It was so horrible that I turned around and came home at mile 1.5 and I have NEVER done that.
I was defeated.
I was defeated before I even started.
I was tired, I was having a bad day and I just couldnt do it. I left thinking I needed to clear my head but I couldnt get past MYSELF.
I cried and came home and emailed Raina saying I just couldnt do it.
She told me it was time for me to take a break and forced me (actually played the coach card) to not run for the next 3 days.
I agreed. I needed to refocus. I needed to clear my head and “start over”. I worried at first that I would miss to many miles, to much fitness, and hurt any weight loss efforts. Then I took a step back and trusted. It felt great.
It felt great to tell Marc, I didnt have to run, I could just come home and have dinner with them and relax. I didnt have to worry about setting my alarm to get up early to beat the heat or have to run on the treadmill at the gym late at night. But its time …
Today is day 3 and I am SO ready to run tomorrow. I will run very easy the rest of the week.
I am excited. I am GRATEFUL, I am renewed and I am READY!
Scandia 5k in 2 weeks and I have a big goal! ………
