Just me and my radio…what a combo!

I have to admit that I was extremely hesitant about today’s run. With the humidex, it was close to 40 degrees Celsius. That is HOT for running. I normally go immediately after church but opted for a late evening outing, hoping for a change in the temperature.

At 7:30, I figured that I’d done enough avoiding, put on my running gear, strapped on the radio and headed out. The schedule said 10K with 10:1 intervals. After the first 10 mintues, I walked and got lost in my thoughts, missing the beep after 1 minute so ended up walking for 2. The funny thing is, I didn’t want to walk at all tonight. I wanted to see how far I could go before I needed to walk.

Turns out, I made it the rest of the way without walking. I am so psyched!!! It took me a really long time to run that distance but I am so okay with that. (I was preserving energy to make it to the end). And my recovery time amazed me!!!

This is going well…very well indeed. I am so grateful for the health to push my body and mind beyond their perceived limits. Bring it on!! 🙂

Peace xo
