I can't believe how much I am enjoying this. I won't lie, there are mornings that I don't feel like running and there are certainly times during the run that I wish I could stop. On the other hand, I love the fact that, when I start my day with my run, I can go through the rest of the day feeling like I have accomplished something. I also, for the first time in my life, feel like I am really improving my fitness. I have worked out in one form or another since 2nd year university, either doing some kind of workout tape or walking, walking, walking. I never really noticed the improvement in my fitness that I was hoping for. With running, I can really see the change. Last Wednesday, Dh's alarm didn't go off and I didn't get to have my morning run. The only time I had was late afternoon, when it was just too hot to run outside. I decided to do my run on the treadmill. I had to up the speed from what I used to run at since my previous indoor running pace felt too slow and I ran 6.35 km in the time, which is almost double what I was running when I started. It's so good to feel fit and strong. This morning, I tried a new route that was mostly uphill (the next run I am hoping to do in the fall is very hilly, I have been told, so I want to start training that way) and I could still do it.
How's your running going?
