ever had a run that was hard every single step of the way.
ever just want to stop but you dont
that was my run today
day 5 of Jury duty dismissed again= free day so naturally a run day right?
glance outside it is windy and cold (OK California cold)
my husband took the Garmin (we share it) and went out layered up for a tough bike ride, his exercise around Palos Verdes
my son (a 19 year old ex-XC high school runner) put on shorts/tee and out the door he went to run ( runs fast and has a super strong mind no stinking wind would stop him!)
How could I not run? it looked windy cold back to bed looked better.
Then I remembered. when I run I feel more energized so I went out.
So cold and windy felt like I did not wear enough clothes (but remember I always overdress) So I ignored my whiny voice and ran. The sun was shinning. Many runners also out there.
But it never got easy. each step felt uphill and legs felt like I had cement shoes.
I am back home. Happy I got my run done even though........wind,cold,lazy. I did it yeah me!
Before I sleep tonight I will have a written plan for these weeks prior to Los Angeles Marathon.
So what are you avoiding today? I hope my agony and triumph over my lazy self encourage you to do something hard. Because you can!
