1. Ran 4.19 miles today in over 50 minutes. Not exactly stellar pace. But hey, whatcha gonna do about it? It felt like I was running with shackles. I felt hungry, heavy and clumsy. And warm bed. Oooh. Running is not easy! Running is a mental sport. Running makes me stronger and a better person because it forces me to do things I won't normally do or like to do.
2. My next run will be a long run - a 9-miler or so. I'm kinda nervous. Not that I haven't done that distance ever, but I'm tired. Mentally drained. And my ankles are tired. This first week back from Christmas break is one tough thing to handle. All I want to do is just lay in bed and read Pride and Prejudice and drink hot tea. But like I said earlier, running makes me stronger and a better person because it forces me to do things I won't normally do or like to do.
3. I'm excited for next week to come. I went ahead and planned meals for next week because I haven't been cooking much this week. Well, I made Chinese wontons (not deep fried, I actually steamed them) one night. Then, we had Subway sandwiches for 3 nights. Ridiculous how lazy I have been. That I would pay for convenience! Anyway, next week, I will do better.
