It's Monday morning. First off, I don't wanna do Monday.
I had yesterday off from running. I don't wanna go run this morning.
No surprises there. I am surprised at how hard my body is fighting to convince me to not go running.
Yesterday I woke up on the couch with a couple more "bites" on my leg. We are not sure where these are coming from, or if they are even bites or not. I've had them happen a few times now. Always in a different spot. This morning - 6 more bumps. These ones are clustered on my neck/shoulder towards my back so I can't even see them. They itch like crazy! The ones from yesterday on my leg are still hurting too. At least the two on my ribcage from last week are clearing up finally. I'm starting to think we have something living in this couch that loves to eat me. Hubby does not have any of these though. No idea what's going on.
Sorry. My mind wandered away with me. Told you my body is fighting this run today.
It's overcast out today, so it won't be too hot. It has also bought me some extra time this morning. I don't have to get up and get out as soon as possible because of the sun and heat.
This morning I realized that although I've been training for just 2 weeks, I have finished week 3 of my training program. Looks like I haven't realized it, but I'm pushing myself pretty hard.
Instead of being proud of that, knowing I'm working hard and succeeding, the thought popped into my head. I can take time off. I'm ahead of the game.
Who am I trying to kid? If it's this hard to keep on track taking one day off, it will be so much worse taking two.
I guess I'm just in a really bad mood this morning. A run will help fix that
I know I need to do this. It's the path I've chosen to follow right now. I have a race coming up. I am no where near ready for this race.
This morning is an "easier" run. Run6min, walk3min and repeat 6 times. So for short periods/distances I push. Then I rest/recouperate.
maybe I should get on the scale first. See just how my hard work is starting to pay off. I'm not loosing a lot, or fast, but I am loosing. That scale will NOT say 237 anymore. That much I do know.
Time to go. I think I've finally tapped into my inner strength this morning. There is a tiny part of me that wants to go upstairs and get dressed for a run now. It's very tiny, but I'm sure if I focus on it it will grow. Or I'll be outside running before I can talk myself out of it again. lol
Have a great day
