Today I mustered up enough courage to run outside, where people can see me (even though ppl can see me at the gym, I have always just had a fear of judgement while outside). I ran 2.5 miles in 30 minutes and the whole time I felt really confident, I kept thinking about how when I am driving and I see people running on the side of the road I think "Good for them". So when I was running today I pictured others thinking the same about me. The one bad part was the heat, next time I will have to go either in the morning or at night when it is cooler out. But other than that I really enjoyed it, even more than running on the treadmill at the gym, the fresh air and actually seeing the distance I was going was just amazing. So this is something I will definitely keep up.
TOMMOROW!! I don't have to work, my plan is to get a lot of household things done and get a 4 mile run in, I have never ran 4 miles before so we will see how it goes. Im thinking a new running playlist to keep my music up beat and keep my mind of the amount of running that will take place.
I wish everyone luck tommorow, Goodnight SparkPeople!
