Isn't it funny how you just adjust to some things?
Like after awhile it just becomes the norm and everything before that was just crazy talk.
That's how I felt today with my running. As per the plan, I am suppose to run 30-45 minutes on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but I have searched and looked at other running plans and they are running 5-8 miles on those days and then a long run on the weekend, which of course I will be doing. On Tuesdays and Thursdays I will run, but I am going to increase my mileage, safely, so I can burn some more calories and fat, build my muscle and help my endurance.
Will every week, I will earn more than that, but there will be weeks, I will run 4 rather than 3 days, like last week. I like the 4 days a week and then two XT days, I feel alive more with that.
I guess I say that now and then we will see when I start hitting higher long runs.
Okay so back to this morning, I wanted to run longer and push myself so I planned for 5 miles. And after sleeping in kind of late considering I had a closing shift tonight, I wasn't sure what I was doing. But I got up and it of course was hot and humid, but seriously, no matter the time, I am going to have that.
I got 5 miles in like it was nothing. I remember when I ran my first ever 5 miles and I cried and looked at my phone and couldn't even believe it. I just kept running and loved it. And then long distance came from there. I mean 5 miles used to mean big mileage to me then and it still does, but now it is just part of the norm. Just part of my every day.
Today, I ran 5 miles and then got ready for work, which might I add I am on my feet every day for. And it was just nothing to me. I would be exhausted before and now, I am like lets do it again tomorrow morning.
While, I wont do 5, but I will run tomorrow rather than XT because my body wants that.
I am loving where my body is taking me and how far it is willing to go.
Continuing on with my Journey to 26.2..Day 47 complete...
