Pushing through the Pain!

Running is PAINFUL right now!!

This right here is why I hate taking breaks from running. The starting back. Its so hard! I don't know how I ever started the first time because now I use the reason that I have done it before so I know I can do it again to get me through! Must have been my determination to do well in a race. I signed up and I was told that I wasn't going to do that well so I was determined to do so... and I did. Winning 2nd place in my first 5K. I really need to get that motivation back!!

I ran 4 miles this morning. I wanted to try to go further than yesterday (3.1) and I pushed through to 4. lol 4 miles seemed like so much this morning and normally this is nothing.

I need my running partner and she is up running 17 miles this week... way more advanced than me at this point. I have a lot of work to do if I am going to run with her again. :) - and I will.

Never Give Up!!

You can't!!!

I am slowly working my way back into it. I got in 7 miles two weeks ago. Last week 8 miles. This week I am at 3 and its only Tuesday!

I made it to the gym around 5:30 this morning!! Yay!!! :) Haven't done that in a while. Maybe I can get back into doing that at least until this football season is over.

I really hate falling behind all my running friends. It can be very depressing watching them move forward and me falling behind due to injury so now I just have to block all that out and work my way back up. I know that I can do it. I have been there before. Your mind is your worst enemy when it comes to running. You can't let the negative outweigh the positive. Its mind over matter!! I keep telling myself that!

Hopefully I will be back up in the double-digits before I know it. Just going to do it the right way... Hopefully :) and be injury free!!!!!

My morning run!! 3.1 with no stops!!! :)
