I may have a shot at this half marathon yet!
Forced myself to do a 4 mile run on the treadmill today. Kept an 11 minute mile pace- so not breaking any records, but an alright time. First decent run I’ve had in awhile. Glad to see I could still do it. Had about 45 minutes to entertain myself. Pondered if my recent dietary changes and reduced alcohol consumption did in fact improve my energy levels so that I was once again able to run. Or if I just believe they did. Either way, I guess it doesn’t matter so long as the job gets completed.
I am up to ten miles this week. If I can squeeze in another three tomorrow, I’ll have completed the same distance as what I am supposed to run on race day. Now, if only I could convince the event organizers to give me a week to finish the race instead of four hours.
Told a friend a few weeks ago about experiencing “runner’s high.” He replied that anyone who gets runner’s high doesn’t remember what it’s like to get high. Probably true. But I left the gym feeling fantastic, ready to take on anything. I know, gross.
Ok, enough boring writing about running. On to boring writing about other things.
