I am still in the running sucks mentality.
Yet, I am craving the activity.
I signed up for my first 5k in May. WTF?!
I think I have shin splints. They hurt like hell. My feet hurt too. Basically everything hurts right now.
So it made sense for me to get up this morning and head to the gym before work right?
While at the gym I was hurting pretty bad. I was on the tredmil trying to walk through the "hurt" (I would not classify it as pain) and it hurt so bad at the 3.0 pace - and that is freaking slow. However, I got myself out of that mindset and did 40 minutes at 3.0-3.2 on the tredmil. Not the best, but I did it. I was getting down on myself and Mama Laughlin's Dear Big Girl post was at the forefront of my thoughts. I was there. I was holding myself accountable. I was doing this for me. I got through the hurt. I felt good afterwards.
And now, here I am, sitting at my desk feeling good about today.
