Ok. This morning i spent about 15 minutes trying to talk myself into going for my "long run' today - the last chance i will get before my 10k next saturday. I was tired, it was hot, i had a headache, and i just wanted to do NOTHING. Then, as i lay in my bed (the only day i am able to sleep in) my neighbors decided to blast their music. Now im annoyed - annoyed enough to run. And i grudgingly trotted out the door, cursing with every step, and quite frankly stomping them, i started to run. It took all of about 3 minutes before i realized, i got this. Im enjoying this. Im so glad i did this. Its always the first steps out of the door that are the hardest - just like the driver to the gym is always the hardest.
I managed to get my 6 mile run in, have enough energy to come back and take my baby squirrel for a 2 mile walk in her stroller - a total burn of 851 calories. For a reluctant start, it was a pretty good workout day :)
it also helped for a restful 45 minute nap lol. Remember, sometimes we have to suffer the pain of discipline or suffer the pain of regret - and trust me, the pain of regret is so much worse and lasts so much longer! Just get er done! Happy Sunday yall!
