I ran Thursday's run on Wednesday, thinking I'll run Wednesday's run today. Guess what?
I ran Saturday's long run today. Yep. I tackled the 6 miles scheduled for Saturday today. And because I was feeling quite good, I actually threw in another 0.2 miles to round it up to a nice 10K.
Total Ran: 6.2 miles in 66:12 minutes
I felt pretty good during today's run, despite feeling a tad sleepy. I was just going to finish 4 miles today, but about 2 miles into it, I fantasized, just briefly, about running 6 miles today. Then, my tummy was not feeling happy. So, I told myself to suck it up and finish the 4 miles so I can go home. However, somehow, I talked myself into using the restroom when I finished 3 miles, go do whatever I need to do, come back and run another 3 miles. Pretty good deal I made with myself, I thought.
I did. It didn't take me too long in the bathroom, so I'll treat it as a walking break. I came back and finished up the 3 miles. I finished strongly, with a sense of pride and with a happy tummy!
So, I guess, I'll do Wednesday's 3-miler on Saturday then. :)
In Other Matters: Some of the comments on my last post (where I demonstrate my mighty ability at being efficient) ask about my occupation.
I am an early childhood speech-language pathologist. I work for a education cooperative in Arkansas and travel to different Head Start schools, private and regular preschools/daycares to work with kids. I love my job.
I just want to share with you how happy and proud I am of myself. I never imagined I will ever just run 10K just for the heck of it on any given day. I'm not Speedy Gonzales, but still, 10K is quite a feat for me.
So, my question to you is: At what point in your running life/career did you go "WOW!" about your running?
