  • RUNNING UPDATE: Confessions of a runner

    Well, a beginning runner. 
    Tonight I went to the gym.  Yes.  Tonight.  I didn’t get up this morning because I stayed up wayyyy too late.  I’m actually digging going to the gym at night.  First of all, I don’t have to get up even before God decides to smile on the earth.  Second, it’s not COLD in there!  I think I’m falling in love with it…slowly.  Wait, maybe not, there is nothing like running in the open air.  And when I run outside I don’t need the iPod.  For some reason my mind tends to Zen itself out and before I know it I’ve run to the halfway point.
    For me there are a couple of tricks to working out in the gym.  iPod.  Actually, that’s the only trick.  I pump my salsa music up so loud I feel like I could run 10 miles without even a gasp.  But then, reality sits in and I’m looking at the bright red 3.63 flickering slowly upward, and wondering if I can even make it to the 5 mile mark I promised myself.  
    To be honest, tonight I had a little bit of trouble.  I was tired.  My muscles were a little sleepy.  They didn’t have the kick they usually do.  I wonder if it’s because I ran 5 miles the night before??  I don’t know.  In spite of my desire to quit at 4 miles and then at 4.5, I didn’t.  Felt good to go all the way to my goal. 
    5.1 — bringing my total mileage for this week up to:
    Oh, yeah, I can TOTALLY hit 20 + miles this week.  Nada prob.  I finished this evenings workout with 10 minutes of stretching, 130 abs and 60 arm reps.
    Silent cheerleaders? Show me some love.

    Great job, Misha!

    You're awesome! Especially running at the gym. Will I make you cry if I tell you it was 58 degrees here at 5:30 this morning?
