Well, I have officially started over with running. I tried to do a run twice this weekend and both times it was pure torture. So, yesterday, I decided to officially start over.
I decided to run 1 mile and just see if I could go without stopping. Thankfully, I was able to, but it was HARD. But, the AWESOME thing is that it was one of my fastest miles – 10:53!!! I knew I was kicking butt and that I wouldn’t be able to hold a good pace for the whole thing or for longer than a mile, but I decided to keep flying while I could. I needed the confidence boost! I looked down several times to see a 9:15 pace. That made me feel great!
So, today, I’m going to try it again. 1 mile. Probably not that fast, but as long as it’s not storming, I’ll be out there running my mile.
