I don’t think I really understood what I was getting myself into when this all started in March, not completely anyway. 10ks is a lot of ground to cover, it sounds overwhelming when I say it out loud even now. Even though I know I can run it my mind still likes to play little tricks on me, trying to catch me up when I least expect it, or am tired, or maybe having an off day. All of those things can often happen, seeing as I REALLY enjoy sleep. And if I’m being honest I really don’t have the best work schedule to fit my life style and activities.
This past Sunday I ran over 10ks with a pretty awesome chick by my side pushing me to reach my goals. This past Sunday is when I decided it was time to get back in the game. This past Sunday was time to Bounce Back.
Prior to this I had missed two hill nights and a Sunday group run..
This is where my lovely work schedule comes in to play and then I guess I have mother nature to also thank for announcing her arrival mid hill run. This was not just any hill night, this was my best hill night, I felt on fire.. until I was literally on fire. Thanks for that body.. So basically I was feeling pretty crappy about my position. I kept trying to talk myself into doing some runs on my own, I was even going to run with other group members but again there was my work schedule and my life getting in the way and making it extremely difficult to do so. I have now come to terms with the fact that I am a group runner, I do not do well on my own. Don’t get me wrong I do enjoy running on my own, just not for long distances, I need my Team Myles girls for that.
This is a reminder that even when things get messy or you get thrown off course a little bit, not to forget where you came from. 10ks they told us at the beginning of all of this, that is what you will be running by May.. never saw that coming or any of this..
