W3D2 - AWESOME!
Honestly, this morning I was looking for ANY and EVERY excuse not to go. I was planning on not running today. But then, something dragged my lazy butt upstairs and got me dressed and out the door. I think the motivation today was that I ran a different route. I decided I would try a flat run today, so I ran Grizzly Way. It was GREAT! I'm excited that I was able to finish without walking at all (despite my negative attitude earlier) and even more excited that I timed myself at about 17.5 min. miles. Now, I'm not worried about my time in this marathon, although I would love it if I wasn't the slowest in my age group. This time "mark" is a mental thing and helps me see my progress, and is so gratifying. The best part is, that I ran 1 mile more than Monday and it's getting easier! AND I LOVE IT! It feels sooo good after a good run...even the sweat. (hee hee) SNOW CANYON 1/2 MARATHON...HERE I COME! :-)
