Today was just a tough one. I did run 20 minutes, but I just couldn't pull it of in one interval. I did a 10, then thought I would do another 10, but ended up doing 2 5 minute intervals intsead. I just couldn't keep it up today. On the bright side, it was a beautiful day out there an running by the water was nice, as always.

I had a 5 day break. It wasn't intentional but I think I also needed it. Year end is really bad at work for me, and I have been pushing through exhaustion. I ran 21 minutes again today, and it wasn't too terribly hard, but it is still a challenge at the end. It feels SO GOOD afterward though! And I am going to need that glow this afternoon for the 1.5 hours of meetings I have. An additional on the plus side is there have been really bad cooties going round the office this year, and I have not gotten sick yet, not even a scratchy throat or a hint of a cough! I think this may be due to the running.

Yesterday I ran out of time and forgot to blog my run. I ran a 21 minute interval. I was shooting for 20 and I knew I was close when I committed to myself to run through this one last song, which was a long song and I knew that, so I knew it would put me over by some amount. Turns out I ran a 21 minute interval. I now recognize the regulars at my somewhat varying run times. Yesterday I ran by cologne man again. Pew! He showers in cologne then goes for a walk, and i get a big old lungful of cologne on the way by that nearly gags me. I don't like you very much cologne man.

Today I ran a 20 minute interval! Woo hoo! It was hard mentally. I had to push myself a little, but I was sure I could do it and I just kept breathing and listening to my tunes. I have a co-worker who is a runner and has been encouraging me along, and when it got tough I just started thinking how I was going to go back to the office and tell her I ran a 20 minute interval, and how excited she would be for me, and how good that would feel. Then pretty soon I was done, and I got to go back and tell her. It was so cool!

I needed a little push today so I decided to run from work to home, and meet DH on the other end for a hug and a morning mocha. I miscalculated though, and reached home after only a 13 minute interval of running. So I kind of shorted myself on my run this morning. On the other hand it was an upwind slog all the way, and running into the wind is quite a challenge. And it was bloomin' cold too. Winter must be settling in. Total run time today, 13 minutes, 12 minutes walking.
