After yesterdays day of nothing but cleaning and organizing, I was anxious to get in a nice run today. I didn't want to follow my habit of the past two weeks.... running only once a week. Last night while watching the Olympics I worked on a new playlist with some fresh new songs. By the time I was done, I had 60 minutes worth of songs, and that is just what I was going to do... run for 60 minutes today.
I decided to do it on the treadmill, as it was overcasting and I didn't want to mess with the rain. About 20 minutes into my run I started making excuses. I remembered I had plans for lunch with ladies from work and started calculating the time I would have left after my run to get ready. Then, the iPod was on the tail end of it's life. The devil in me said if I make it to 3 that would be good. Deep down inside it was just a goal of mine to do 5 miles... and when I reached 5 miles I wanted to quit, but I went on and did the full 60 minutes. This was the longest run I have done since the Half Marathon in May... yikes. Not cool.
After I was done I felt great. No pain in the knees or shins and my quads felt strong. I even had time to write up this post before lunch! ha.
