My post is a little late because I wanted to forget about last week’s training. Here is the subject line in the email I sent to my running coach:
These pictures show my real feelings about the whole week. I am not sure why it was so bad…humidity, heat, fatigue…excuses! LOL! But it was! When I emailed my runs to our coach I felt like a poor student reporting bad test results to my teacher.
I will say I love having goals for every run. It breaks the monotony and helps with purpose and getting it done…but oh, do they hurt! 🙂 I sent the girls a text at one point saying, “what doesn’t kill us or make us puke, makes us stronger! Right?”
We decided to tackle the hardest run first…Wow! Here is how that played out:
The 3rd run was better…I ran it thinking of the fallen heroes in Chattanooga and the sacrifice they made. Praying and thinking of others made it much more doable. I am running. God has blessed me to be able to move. I need to be thankful for life and the ability to put one foot in front of the other…daily!
5 miles @ 90% of 10k pace on a bike is NO problem….
Thankful for friends to suffer with…and grow with!
Proverbs 27.17 ~ As iron sharpens iron, so a friend sharpens a friend.
This week’s runs showed me that we will have bad runs…we will have good runs….and we will have done runs! And in the middle of it all we can still have fun runs…we can still grow and we can still do more than we thought! All runs were finished and I didn’t regret one of them!!!!
