Today- it hit me--- it takes me longer to get psyched up to go for a run than it does to run! My husband is right about that---- however going 5 miles today- it did take me longer to run :)
My goal was to run under 50 minutes--- I thought at first I could beat that easily-- WRONG! Mile 4 was a struggle. I honestly think it's because I knew where my 1, 2, and 3 mile markers were- but 4 I wasn't sure so I kept checking my time/distance on my phone---- then once I hit the 4 mile I still wasn't sure if I was going to go 4.5 or 5 miles. Well, 4.5 hit and I said to myself "I got this!" and kept pushing on.
5 miles 49:09---- UNDER MY GOAL!
