I’m 4 weeks into my 10k training plan. I can’t believe how fast the last four weeks have gone! I’m actually enjoying it. I love having a schedule, even if some days I really don’t want to run that far. But, I’ve stuck with it – including the 4 mile run I did Sunday. This was one of those runs where I woke up and really, really wanted to skip it. No reason, just felt like being lazy. But, even after finding out my ipod was DEAD, I still forced myself to go outside. And I”m SO glad I did. Cause I rocked that run – going the whole run without stopping. It wasn’t fast, but it was fabulous! I had mapped out my run on dailymile and knew about where each mile marker was. I thought about stopping a few times, but managed to push through it. My legs felt a little sore and tight in the beginning, but by the end, I was actually smiling. I even laughed as I walked up my driveway. I’m still not sure I can wrap my head around the fact that I ran for 4 miles, nonstop.
In related news, I signed up for the Holiday Bootie Buster Challenge over at Run to the Finish.
Why? Cause I’m hoping it will keep me on task throughout the holidays. My 10k training is over in 4 weeks … and while I”m worried that I may slip back into doing nothing, I may have told a friend I would be ready for a half in the spring.
Now, I just need to get motivated to do some weight training. *sigh*
