As you guys already know. I am currently training for a 5K (Woot Woot!) Today was the second day of week two of training and it felt great. I really enjoy getting up early to get my workout out of the way (or at least, for now I am liking it). The actual getting up part is a little hard for me still. Today my alarm went off at 6:30 and I laid in my bed for 20 minutes running through the pros and cons of getting up vs. staying in bed. After 20 mins, I realized that if i was awake enough to have an analytical debate in my head, I really didn't have any reason to not get my bum outa bed and get to the gym. 30 min of training and 1/2 and episode of Hellcats later (no shame), I was dripping in sweat and loving every second of it. Today's workout felt amazing. It was tough because I was a dumby and didn't turn the air conditioning on in the gym, but not so tough that i felt defeated. Just well worked and satisfied.
Given my new love for feeling running (NOPE- feeling accomplished) I decided to jump on the bandwagon that my friends are driving (?- do you drive a bandwagon, o well you know what I mean) and I signed up for my first ever 10K as well. Yes. I am sure I sound crazy. I can barely run one mile and here I am signing up to run 6.2 (6.4? How long is a 10K?- Bad sign?). Welp. I decided that, in honor National Running Day, I was throwing out my my belief that I cant run and diving in head first :) No time like the present!
Roommate dearest has been begging people to do an athletic event with her and because this one is so far away, I decided that I would join. I signed up for the NYC Rock N Roll 10K in October!
When did you guys do your first 10K? I hear that adrenalin really helps ya out! Heres hoping.
How are you guys celebrating National Running Day?
