How many people did *not* run today?
Friday, March 28, 2014
That's what I have to ask myself when I run but am not satisfied with my efforts. Remember, Self, you did more today to achieve fitness than millions in this country did. Give yourself a little credit!
So anyway, I did run. On the Dreadmill. It was a surprisingly good run, actually. Whereas I've only been able to run 2 minutes/walk 2 outdoors, on the dreadmill I was able to run 15 minutes, walk 5, and that's with the dreadmill at a 5% incline. I did that for an hour. Only covered 3.4 k, but whatthehell whatthehell it was a significant improvement in endurance, so I'm happy with it.
As PAULOBRY suggested, I've incorporated Usain's 'lightening bolt' stance as the final act in my day's run--a little celebratory, self-congratulatory concluding ritual. "A man's reach must exceed his grasp, or what's a heaven for?", right? ; )
Thanks for all the encouraging remarks, SparkFriends. They really do make a difference : )
