I don't know why this is so frustrating for me, but not being able to run at the pace I was before I got hurt SUCKS.
I ran 2 miles today.
At a 9:56 pace.
This isn't the pace I want to run, but I think if I try to move any faster my lungs will explode and someone will have to drag me off the street like road kill. Not cool.
My goal for the week is to run 4-5 days, 2 or 3 miles each run.
Start out easy and get the miles in. I can work on my pace later.
I know this is 100% mental battle.
I have done this before...I can do it again.
So, Kiley at Daily Vitamin F has a holiday series of virtual runs. Obviously I bailed on the 5k I signed up for Saturday morning so I have to kinda redeem myself somehow and I think this would be the perfect start.
If you want to join, you should head on over to her blog and read more about it.
I think I have the Monday blues today. I want to be laying on the couch in my pj's drifting in and out of sleep while reruns of Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders plays on CMT.
7 school days until Thanksgiving vacation. I can do this!
What are your Thanksgiving plans?
