Yay for today being Thursday. Can I get a holler for one more workday and it’s the weekend???!!! I’ll save the rest of my complaining for tomorrow about how long of a work week this has been and it’s not even over. Sheesh.
Last night I leashed up The Senator for a run and though I was not feeling 100% inspired, something changed along the way. I felt powerful in spite of the terribly hot weather (the 80’s, and nice and humid for added pleasure) and I changed my route to incorporate more mileage. I tuned out of what was happening around me and just enjoyed running with the dog and myself. I had no tasks to accomplish, no goals set, nothing. While I wasn’t technically doing Olive to Run’s Run Free for Me Challenge, I was doing something in between that. Man, it felt great. 🙂
Oh, yeah, and I wore one of my favorite running outfits to help encourage myself!
It was brutal but it was successful. All negative splits, too. Chelsea at Little One Runs posted about a run this week where her legs were just not having it but she told herself the sooner you get home, the sooner you’re finished. I channeled some of that power to whip it into gear for my last mile. I just wanted to be home and cozy up with some Parks and Recreation! Such a bum….
Here’s some love from me to all of you on this wonderful day.
I blindly signed up to receive these emails from the Universe and some of them just hit the nail on the head for me, like this one today does. Lately I have been appreciating more people and things around me and have been filled with love for everyone and everything. I know it sounds ridiculous, but being surrounded by things that make me happy, challenge me in positive ways and encourage me makes me feel something warm inside. So, love like crazy and maybe you’ll feel A OK. Like the Universe says, works for me!
Do outfits influence your workouts?
