It's About Perspective
Friday, April 20, 2012
Today I didn't want to do Day 2 of Week 3. It was drizzling and cold out, and I didn't want to go out in that. Of course, I reminded myself, "You can quit in five minute if you really want to," so I went out and (of course) didn't quit after five minutes. I was grumbling to myself, thinking "Why can't I just have a treadmill? Even one in the gross basement? Why can't I just have a gym membership? Why why why oh woe is me this sucks I don't wanna blahblahblah" . . .but doing it anyway. Only thirty minutes for the 5k training plus some extra for warm up and cool down. About a half hour out of the 16 or so I'm awake is not very much. Just do it and get it over with.
Part of the way through, I realized nobody was around. . . probably because it's so crummy out.
Got to the parking lot. . . Nobody was parked there.
Whoo hoo! Drizzling, cold days aren't for complaining about. They're a break from having to worry about other people seeing my butt jiggle while I run! Ha. Also, no need for sunglasses which are kind of annoying to wear while running. So, hey, there are reasons to look forward to gloomy day walks/runs.
Oh, and as for the actual intervals, they were awesome! I actually did a great job and even easily ran an extra minute for the last one just to see how it would be.
. . .so, of course, I'm looking forward to Sunday, the next 5k training day.
