This morning was THE best run I've had in months! It felt amazing outside...amazing! I walked out there at 6:45am and the breeze almost knocked me down and the temps-low 60's! Do you understand how wonderful that was? I ran 5 miles and didn't start to break a sweat until mile 3! WOOHOO! At least I know I can still find my groove with my runs. I was starting to lack confidence since my runs have been less than great lately with the extreme heat.
Today's a new day! I feel confident that I'm going to kick major booty in this half marathon in January! I'm pumped and ready to go! I think I was smiling from ear to ear this entire run! Ha! And so ya know, that usually isn't my facial expression while I'm out there pushing hard...I usually look more like I'm angry and determined! Today I was just smiling and enjoying the scenery!
Have you had a workout like this lately? A day like this is the reason that I exercise. It's a release. A total feeling of letting all my stress go as I run, step by step. It is a feeling like no other. This is how I tell myself to wake up and exercise each day! Wow, and it's totally worth it :) This week I have to focus on my exercise and eating very closely. I stand in my friends wedding this weekend, 9/10/11 and I'm wearing a short dress! I gotta get these legs nice and toned in a hurry!
