That was hard

Not every run is going to be easy.  That seems like a “Duh” comment, but it’s a nice reminder sometimes.

Like today.   Today I freaking dragged ass on my run.  I met up NICE and early with two friends and we headed out for 5-6 miles.  We met at 5 am sharp.  I, oh so lucky me, was up before my alarm and got the gym early so I hopped on the treadmill for a 1/2 mile warm up first.

When we got on the road, I immediately felt like I was pushing myself harder than normal.  Oy, that’s the worst.  I struggled to keep up.  Thank god I have nice friends who wait for my lardass.

We did 6 miles in 52:42. It was an average of 8:45.  Not bad at all but it was NOT easy.  Wouldn’t it be nice if EVERY run was a good run?

Even though it wasn’t a great run physically, I still loved it.  Running as the sun comes up is my most favorite thing EVER.

As for today, I am considering going to crossfit tonight.  I heard it was a cool workout, but I am not sure I want to push myself since I sucked this morning.  What do you think?

I forget where I saw this, but I saved it because I love it.  I hope you do too!

Make it a great day
