W7D1 Complete! And while out of town!
Monday, August 09, 2010
Yesterday morning, I completed the first day of week 7! Its a 25 minute run. I was a little worried I wouldn't get the run in because we are out of town for a wedding, but my family told us about a nice running path nearby. We decided to give it a try and I'm so glad we did! The trail was awesome. It runs right along the river and has a tree cover so we weren't in the blazing sun the whole time. It was also very peaceful and quiet, which I will admit is a nice break from our crazy neighborhood park in NYC that we normally run in! People even said "Good morning" haha.
The run was nice and I didn't struggle much at all. But I think I'm hitting some kind of mental block or something. I did very well with the longer runs and when we went back to intervals, I was totally bummed. I was looking forward to being free of intervals, but now that we are- I find it pretty intimidating. Its like my mind is suddenly really overwhelmed by the idea of always HAVING to run longer. I say my "mind" because I know my body is just fine...its my brain that keeps doubting me.
I'm just glad I did it and feel proud of that. Any suggestions for getting past this mind hurdle??
