So today I was determined to complete 5 miles. I’ve completed a little over 4, but never 5. So I went to http://www.mapmyrun.com – the same app I use for when I’m out running – and figured out my path!
I was over zealous. I chose a route that took me (and Tinsley) down a main road. When school was let out. Which led me to LOTS of traffic and wayyyyyy too many stoplights.
Might I also mention that my legs felt like lead and that someone was stabbing a trident through them. But somehow I kept plugging on.
I walked quite a bit – still haven’t gotten to the mental or physical capacity to not walk. It’s mostly mental, I know. I especially walked today cause I was a hurting.
But the best things was when I got back to my house I felt like I could go longer. Well, my lungs and my head told me I could go longer….my legs were trying desperately to shut down and unsuccessfully scream profanities at me.
I ended the session was some amaaaazinngggg ice, nice shower, homework, and a glass of wine.
Can’t beat it and I can’t wait to see what my next run will hold.
Butttt, I think I’ll take tomorrow off running, I’m no fool.
