I hit the treadmill a few times this week, and painful (mentally...no injuries here!) as it was, I felt better when I was done.
|I did try to crazy-bright up my treadmill outfits...crazy as it seems, it did seem to work in boosting my mood and enthusiasm for the work out!|
The shamrock run is in 3 weeks. I probably won't beat my time from last year, nor will I beat my newly-returned-to-running-after-a-10-year-hiatus-hubby but I'm ok with that. My happy runs are returning along with longer days and that's the best thing ever!
I have no idea what is going on with my picture formatting! Oh well!
I went out again on Sunday and should have run the hill in front of my house at the end because my out and back ended up being 4.8 miles...so close to 5! (It was a little easier...no wind to run into, and no bricks on my feet as the roads were much clearer) It's amazing how much better I feel when I am outside and the sun is shining. My January total was a measly 22.5 miles, so anything to improve that is a good thing. I'm terrified about running the Mountain Goat in May, but not as terrified as I was when I was thinking about it last week.
