Hey y'all! Look at all these happy runners
Tonight was W7D2 - 25 minutes again. I have to admit, I was dreading it. I did a Barre strength training class before and we had a sub teacher who worked us a lot harder than our regular teacher does. Afterward, I wandered out to the track and it felt so hard to just get started. I really had doubts that I would finish. And, then... after about 8 minutes, it got easier, and by the time she said 1 minute left, I was feeling really good and thought I could go longer. (I didn't, of course!
I'm not crazy!) One of the things I like about this is that it's all new territory for me. The feelings and the accomplishments are all new. It's a constant surprise!
You're so close to "graduating!" Way to go! Do you run on a treadmill or outside? I can't wait to increase my speed, but not sure how that is going to happen. ha!
Keep on keeping on! Just do the next thing they tell you to do. I promise you'll be able to do it!
, the feeling after you get started for a while is that it's just "happening". I'm not sure how it happens or why it happens, but it does, and you can just keep on going. I'm beginning to think that there's more of a mental game going on here than we realize. You just can't let the doubt, negativity, apathy, tiredness, or whatever stop you -- and if you don't, it all comes together and "works". There's probably a book somewhere about "the tao of running"...
