For the first time since I started this journey, I am beginning to believe in myself.
For most seasoned runners, running 4k is nothing. But today, I went out and again managed 5 & 1's and did pretty good. It was a beautiful day and it would have been a real waste to not take advantage of Nana and get out there for a half hour or so!
While I was running, I realized that it wasn't so hard. There was discomfort, but I managed to push through it and realized it was stiff and tired, not pain. Once I got going, it felt good. And my cardio has also improved.
I am looking forward to the Sporting Life 10k. It should be fun. And being able to say I ran it at my own pace is awesome.
