It was a cooooold 3 miles today. Joy came over and we switched off again. It's SO nice to be able to do that with her. I went first and didn't even think to use a scarf. Boy, do I wish I had one. The snow was pelting me in the face and neck. I didn't warm up until about halfway into the run.
I'm relearning how to run without thinking about running. I keep getting to a point in my run where I just want to stop. I'm not sore and my muscles aren't super tired. I just want to stop. So, today I kept telling myself that when I get to that point where I want to stop that's when my body is reaching the next level. If I stop when I'm just about there I'm just cheating myself. I have to push past the uncomfortable and keep on. So, today that's what I did. I stopped twice to take a couple pictures, but I finished strong.
My sister was next. I told her what I was thinking about while running and she went running. Her goal was to beat my time. She did great and ended up beating me by 2 minutes! Go Joy!
Tomorrow is 2 miles or cross training. I think I might just do the elliptical tomorrow, but we'll see.
