Surprisingly, the runs get easier
Thursday, October 04, 2012
Not necessarily easier physically. I'm still not in anywhere near good running shape (or physical shape for that matter). I'm seeing minor, very minor improvements in the mechanics of the run. Mostly just a very, very slight upward trend.
All of that stuff will come in time, but it's not the important part. You see, the runs are getting easier mentally. That is HUGE. My inner wimp is still there, but she's much easier to coax out on a run. She doesn't complain nearly as much, or for as long. That's the good part about wimps. They give up pretty easy.
Hope she doesn't show up Sunday. I have a six miler scheduled - the longest in...forever it seems. I feel like this will be the first big 'hump' I need to get past. Glad the weather is scheduled to get much cooler and less humid as of Saturday night, especially since Sunday runs have to happen on Sunday afternoons right now.
In other news, I survived today. Funny, you expect the 'second' time of...whatever...to be easier. It's not. Not sure the third, fourth, or fifth will be any easier either. Normal days - yeah, time passed helps. you don't think about 'IT' as much as time passes. But milestone days? Just as raw. Life is funny like that.
But I survived. And tomorrow is another day.
Hope my inner wimp doesn't get all worked up about Body Pump class. I'm looking forward to it tomorrow!
