9 miles w/ the Tribe...
Saturday, May 14, 2011
I had a meltdown running 7.5 mi two weeks ago. I felt alright running 6.2 last Sunday. I felt goood doing 4 mi on a trail on Tuesday, and still achey doing an easy 3 on Thursday.
I wasn't sure what to expect for today's run. TOM started yesterday. I stayed up too late catching up with Private Practice. I did not eat healthy for dinner. I was bloated for a variety of reason.
I went anyway, even though I tried everything to talk myself out of it. I just ignored myself, and went. Go figure.
After today, I'm able to believe, just a little bit more, I can do a Half. I appreciate it if all y'all KNOW I can do one, I really do. If I don't believe it in my heart, though, it'll never happen. Today, I'm that much closer.
Simply showing up and finishing is no longer enough for me. I do not expect perfection. I do expect progress, and improvement.
Today, I saw both, and I am happy.
