Day 16

So, I feel like I have redeemed myself from the horribleness that was Saturday. I had full intentions of running last night during half time, but instead I fell asleep on my couch and missed my run and the entire last three quarters of the game. I was exhausted. I really needed the sleep anyways. Saturday was, well, you saw. And Friday, I skipped thinking that it was going to be my only day of rest. Wrong!

That brings us to tonight. I really wasn’t feeling well. I left work early because I thought I was going to be sick. The bus ride to my car was about the most miserable experience I’ve had in a while. Yes, even worse than Saturday. I just knew that I was going to throw up on the poor kid that had the misfortune of sitting next to me. 🙂 I got home and saw my workout clothes still folded from last night on the end of my couch and decided that I would at least give it a try. Better than letting another day pass without running. So, I got dressed and drove to my gym and started my run. About half a mile in, I started to get a little bit of energy, which was shocking given how I’ve felt all day. I passed the one mile mark and was feeling proud of myself. I even did that mile while texting. 😉 I decided that I was going to keep going to the two mile mark and see how I felt. Two miles would be great, especially since I wasn’t feeling well. Two miles came and still feeling good so I kept going. At the end of my run, I did four miles. The four miles I would’ve done on Saturday if I hadn’t stayed out so late with my friends.

I am so glad that I decided to run. I actually feel tons better. It makes me wonder if it was from going from running everyday to skipping three days. Who knows. I guess I’ll find out when I wake up tomorrow. But here’s hoping!! Right now, I’ll ride this redemption high and enjoy a little Dexter as a reward. 🙂

Day 11 – Rhythm

I seem to be getting into the rhythm of running, which is a happy, happy thing. Right now, my schedule is long runs on Saturdays with my running group and treadmill work on the rest of the days. Since I am pretty much playing catch up with the rest of my group, on my “rest” days, I only run half as far as on my run days and at a slower pace. Trying to build up the endurance that when I started out, I obviously didn’t possess. I take one day to actually rest and do nothing but stretch and my body has finally decided to stop punishing me for what I guess it perceived as an act of hatred towards it. 🙂

Last night was a run night and according to my schedule, I needed to run 2 miles. For whatever reason, when I am on the treadmill, I can’t seem to run as far as I can when I am outside. Maybe it’s the monotony of the treadmill. Running in place while staring out at the pool that I can’t use since it is too cold.

Last night, I decided to turn on the television, sound muted, and run with my music on (still working the rap :)). Before I knew it, I had run the two miles and was working on my cool down. YESSSSS!! I am so glad that I am seeing progress so early on. I think that I could have gotten discouraged and quit if I didn’t have such great results so far. Loving the little running angel I must have on my shoulder. Now starting to think that I can do the 13.1. Maybe one day, I’ll try the 26.2. Yeah, nooooooooo…. 😉
