I am one happy girl!!
Monday - 5 miles pain free
Wednesday - 6 miles pain free
Thursday - 8 miles PAIN FREE
All but 4 miles of these runs were on the treadmill this week. Yesterday I ran 4 miles to the gym to then jumped on the treadmill and finish the last 2 miles. HOT is all I can say about the 4 miles outside. Today I somewhat dreaded the 8 miles on the treadmill for fear of complete boredom. Once I started I decided that mind games would pass the time so I began with simple games. First I watched this couple walk around with a clip board from one machine to another. Very little exercises happening and way to much talking for me. Come on guys get working! Then my mind drifted to the solo woman playing racquetball. She looked so lonely like she had no friends at all. Then came the pretty boy. This is a guy who spent more time checking himself out in the mirror than he needed to. Now that was pretty funny and sad all at the same time.
I am sweaty and stinky right now but thrilled to post this great feeling. Bob... I am a believer!!
Only 20 on Saturday and 10 on Sunday to go for this week. Will avoid hills and focus on the miles for just a bit longer until I know I am good to go.
