|I like that I don't look like I want to die. Yes, I look sweaty. Yes, I'm wearing a stupid sweatband. But I don't look exhausted and ready to fall out. That's progress!|
On days I do a shorter run by myself, I've been going the other direction and turning the music in my headphones up loud and pushing myself to run faster. I'm not sure which is better but I think both of them are good for me and I like that I'm continuing to try different things.
|My first time wearing a silky type running shirt. Hated it. I'll stick with my cheap crappy cotton Target shirts from now on.|
I also walked a lot and enjoyed the fresh air and sunshine. My nine year old decided she wanted to walk a mile in my shoes. Rather than our usual short spin around the park, she requested to go the full distance I usually do without her. So we did almost 4 miles. Slowly. 20 minute mile slowly. Considering we did a pit stop at the bathroom and then picked weeds flowers and ceremoniously tossed them into the lake, I'm amazed we got anywhere.
run a half marathon, I definitely didn't think I'd be running a second one. But I decided I wanted to see what I'm capable of. My husband's ankle injury last time threw that off a little. He won't be running with me this time. It makes me nervous to contemplate mile 10 to 13 without him since I've never run that far without him. But part of me likes that I'm a little nervous. Much like last time, I'm shooting for 2:20 best case scenario. I'm ready for it to be hard. And I'm ready to bring it. Let's do this.
