Yesterday I went for my mid-length run for Week 3 (4 miles). I had spent the day running errands and was starting to come down with a cold, so it was hard to get started. I spent most of the run counting down the miles until I could be home and eat some dinner and take a shower.
It’s okay–not every run will be a revelation or a trial, but every run is an achievement and brings me closer to the goal.
I’m resting up today and this cold isn’t very bad at all. I don’t have to work tomorrow, so I am attempting to complete my long run on a Friday instead of a Saturday. To help make the run a little more enjoyable, I am going out to my favorite lake trail and loading up some This American Life podcasts just in case 🙂
