First workout in 4 days.
Not gonna lie today was rough. I hadn't planned on how far or how long I
was going, I know I just wanted to run. It started off ok, but then my
legs literally felt like I had 10lb weights on them. So it turned into a
walk/run. The good thing about living in an old neighborhood is how
beautiful it is. I love the houses and everything about it. But one
thing. And that would be the sidewalks.
Not all of them are bad, but there are some that are really bad and I
ran in a couple of dips that didn't feel good on my feet. I tried so
hard, so very hard to hit 4 miles, but I just couldn't do it.
kept reminding myself that it's not always going to be easy JUST like
anything else in life. I will have good days and bad days, but it just
matters that I did my best. And today, I did.

comes a point when you just start running, where your body begins to
hurt. For me personally, I feel like there is a difference in being in
good shape, and being in running shape. I can rock Turbo Fire, but
running is tough for me. Is that just me?
When I did my first
Beachbody workout it was Insanity. I remember being in week 3 and
literally could not get out of bed without rolling out. My back hurt so
bad. My legs were shaky walking down the steps. Everything HURT. I
wanted to quit, but never did. Because eventually the pain goes away.
September 3rd was when I started running (again) and this is my 6th run
since then. (That heat spell we had kept me inside for a bit) I have
been averaging about 3 miles per run, taking me about 40 minutes. Today
I had just left the alley behind my house (that would be the picture of
one of our neighborhood cats, Oz cat) and was at 3 miles. I turned
right, and was just about to take another right to head home. Then I
thought hell with it. So I went straight, and ran down another alley,
then back home. I was feeling it. In my lower back, my shines, and my
feet. I decided that this was good. I ran the furthest I ever had, and
I'm damn proud of myself. 3.55 miles in 44 minutes.
But this is
the time I usually quit. I quit because it hurts, and I get
uncomfortable, then I just say "I don't like to run." "Running is not
I can't, and won't stop now. Keep me accountable. Make
sure I remember that my body will adjust. I can't expect results
without being a little uncomfortable along the way, just like Insanity.

What a super awesome run I had today. I gotta tell ya, I was going to stop at 2 miles. Not for any reason other then thinking I could come home and do weights. But then I decided to keep going. THEN saw I was at 2.47 and thought "I am going to run 3!" So I did plus a little more!! Feeling very accomplished and happy today!!
Labor Day weekend was fun! Hubby had an extra day off work, and of course the girls were off Monday too. I wasn't feeling the best, but we made the best of it! Happy girls=happy family. <3
