Today is a Woohoo kind of day. Why? Because yesterday I had a thought. I thought that maybe I should do something about this feeling I had on Sunday as I finished my run. That thought was that I could go further, push myself a little more. So, yesterday, I decided that today I would try for 4 miles instead of just the 3.1 miles (5K) that I usually run. Well, I did it. Easily. I know I can go further. If I keep this up with my increasing my mileage on run days, I’m going to be running the Capital 10K in Austin, TX in April instead of some random 5K. I mean, I’m still going to run a 5K, but if I can run the Cap 10K as well,, oh my god, I will feel like I’m on top of the world! I’ll have to make sure I’ve got a friend at the finish line to take a picture of me as I cross it, victorious! Teehee.
I absolutely love running outdoors. I feel so free when I’m out there running. I feel like I can do whatever I put my mind to doing when I’m running outdoors. I have no problems when I’m out running. Nothing else matters while I’m running. It really is my absolute favorite thing, and that’s saying a lot because I have had a long term love affair with weight lifting. But I just don’t look forward to weight lifting in the same way that I look forward to running.
