Yesterday, I ran 3.23 miles. Without stopping to walk or anything!! :) I got lost and had no other way back to my car but to jog, so I shall try to lose myself every time! ha ha. It was a great feeling when I got home and mapped my run online. I couldn't believe I did it, but good thing.. since my 5k+ is in a week and a half! I'm not so worried about it now, at least! :)
I am taking the running night off tonight and going to hot yoga. My shins hurt pretty bad and I watched a video about marathons and this woman actually developed stress fractures on her shins from all the running. Now I am kind of scared of that!
I have heard from a lot of people lately that they "can't" run. Okay, I'm saying this. I used to think the same thing.. but unless you have some physical ailment preventing you from running (say only one foot.. or 3 knees.. etc) you can. I am not super human. I am overweight, have a long history of smoking, a heart condition and formerly suffered from asthma. Don't say you "can't". Say you don't want to. There is nothing wrong with not wanting to run just say it. :)
I am learning more and more each day that it is totally mind over matter and no one can convince me otherwise.
How is that for an uplifting post? lol
