I swear, I think just having a temper tantrum via my blog helped my brain get over this "I hate running" thing. Last night I took a dinner break at work and decided to run around Fremont. I ran seven miles straight, no walking breaks, and it felt amazing. I have never ran that far without taking a walk break, so I cannot explain the amount of pride I felt when I was done!
I'm trying to figure out exactly what I did differently so that I can replicate that for my longer runs in the future. I drank plenty of water during the day...I went slow and steady and didn't worry about pace, I just worried about moving...I had new songs on my playlist.
That's it! I had three new Miley songs on my playlist and I was so excited to hear them, I couldn't stop running.
I have a ten mile run on Friday-ish. Praying for a good one!
