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
