What did I do???????
I ran...And I ran FAST!!! I met a huge running goal today. I ran the whole stinkin thing! For the first time ever I ran a 10 minute mile on the treadmill at the gym. I picked this goal because it is the same speed that our 5th graders are suppose to run the mile in at school. I set the speed at 6.0 and just kept going. I felt AMAZING! I was proud of myself for my time, but more than that I was proud of myself for not giving up on my workout just because it wasn't what it had started out to be.
Be encouraged the next time your workout isn't going as well as planned. Your body might just have something else in mind. We talk about intuitive eating to meet the food needs of our body. I'm starting to wonder if there is something to be said for intuitive exercise.
Guess what else I realized today? I AM A RUNNER! A real life runner! I actually like running. I've always told people that I do it because it's good exercise. Today I pushed my body further than it has every gone before and I actually liked it.
