Finally! The runner's high
Sunday, July 18, 2010
Wow! What a contrast! From two of the worst running experiences last week, to the best run ever today..Now I know why people encourage you to keep at it! I felt like I could run forever today..Certainly it helped that the humidity was way down compared to the last week or so...I also wore my ipod today, so I could listen to something besides my breathing and my feet hitting the ground..
This has motivated me to keep at it, and to work through this plateau I am on.
I plan to celebrate what I have accomplished, instead of focusing on the scale number..
1) I loved my run today...6 months ago I would have laughed if you told me I would be a runner
2) I have so much more energy for my day..I like to keep moving..have goals to accomplish all day everday..no more lounging on the couch for hours.
3) The quality of my sleep is SO much better
4) I am doing much better keeping everything in perspective, meaning so much less stress!
To anyone who reads this..I say hang in there! If I can do it, you can too! Believe in yourself!
