This week has been crap for running, I ran twice, instead of every day. And, I am a horrible stress eater, and works been hella stressful. It's amazing what eating shit can do for your ass in a pair of jeans in a matter of days. I feel it growing!!
I couldn't face another second at work, even in the gym. So, instead of the old me way of thinking and ignoring it, I ventured out for an outdoor week day run since the weather has been great, and it doesn't get dark now til after 6pm!! YES! (BTW...February in Ohio...in a tshirt and long pants!! I love it!!!)
About 2 miles in, it started to rain. And, instead of the usual 4 miles, I did 6. I didn't turn around at the 2 mile mark, I turned around at 3!
Instead of over an hour for 6 miles, I did it in 50 minutes.
That's just the sort of thing one needs, to get their mojo back. And remind yourself...I still got it!!
The body is an amazing thing, when you master the mind that tells you, "you can't" and you push past your comfort level....its all sorts of inspiring!
