I Kept My Word
If nothing else, I sucked it up and kept my word. Last week I promised myself to get in 2 more longer training runs before the Heels & Hills Half Marathon on May 6. This morning I was trying to take those words back so badly! I did not want to get up, even though I was awake. I did not want to run, even though I was getting dressed. I didn't want to go to the high school, even though I was driving that way. I didn't want to run the 7 mile loop, even though I followed behind others heading out that way. Somewhere along the sidewalk I got into the groove and ended up enjoying myself. I got it done one foot in front of the other, one mile at a time. At the end I was over myself and felt great. Sometimes it's matter over mind, will over emotions and goal over mood. Just a quiet Woo-Hoo today is fine.
