You wanna know why? Because he kicked me out of the house, locked the door behind me, and told me I couldn't come back in until I ran 7 miles. :) How's that for support! I went through the usual routine of setting the alarm for 5:30, hitting snooze until 7, then getting dressed and not running until 9:30. He had to head out to work at 11:30 so he told me that if I didn't get out and get running then it probably wouldn't happen and that I would end up dreading it all day. So, he pushed me out the door, locked it, and told me to get it done.
It was COOOLD this morning and I wasn't as prepared as I would have hoped, with ear warmers and all that jazz. I even tried to use that as an excuse to get back in the house and he opened the door a crack and says "Start running and you'll warm up!" Hahaha! So, that's what I did....I started running.
I did a couple laps around the lake. It kinda sucks that it takes me 2.5 miles to get into my groove, but that just means that I will always have negative splits. I ran the 2nd half 5.5 minutes faster than the first. Crazy, huh?! My first mile was a 12.04 minute mile and my last mile was 9.04. I love it!
The whole time I was running I couldn't stop thinking about how awesome my man was for kicking me out of the house. He knows it's getting to crunch time and he doesn't want me to quit. He's such a great man.
Thanks, babe for being there for me and supporting my running!!
Now, I've got some sore feet and tired legs. Time for a nap! Oh, and things are so far so good for today's food. I even took a Reese's Egg (MY FAAAAVORITE!) that I was saving and gave it to my daughter so I wouldn't be tempted.
