Monday I got home from work a little late. It was ridiculously cold outside, but I was craving an outdoor run. I started out and it was already dark (I don't really understand daylight savings time). My muscles also felt a bit tight and I couldn't really get my tight shins to join the party. I could have given up right there. In fact, I considered it. But I just told my self to get to a mile. My body warmed up, I started to get in the groove, and I was feeling good. I told myself the next step was to get to two miles. After two miles, I was feeling great. The desire to complete a 5k was at a peak. I felt driven and motivated and not only did I complete the 5k, I exceeded it by .15 of a mile. I ran 3.35 miles! Moral of the story: Fight for it-Don't Give Up!
IT WAS WONDERFUL! It felt amazing to be back in the game, to really feel good and happy running. My ankle still gets a little sore, but as long as I ice it, it doesn't give me to many problems. I feel so blessed for this!
Even though there are good days and bad; days where a workout fits into the schedule perfectly and days where it doesn't; days where you eat healthy and feel content and days where you eat the cupboard and feel remorse, the main thing is to fight for it and not give up!
