• Tryna "Go for the Gold!"
To be honest, I've been slacking on my workouts this week. Skipped a day (or 2) and made them up the following day. It's tough getting back into a daily/weekly routine when I have a serious case of the "lazies!" Today, I had 20 minutes to spare so I went for a run at the lake. It was a nice change up from the treadmills I've been running on lately because of the drizzling weather. It was super sunny out this afternoon with a cool breeze, beautiful view, and the refreshing air just got me jetting off. At the end of it, I didn't feel like I was dying in exhaustion but did try to push myself to make it back on time. I normally average 10 minute miles and am happy to even settle for that. Today, when I finished and viewed my final average, it was only 9 minutes! I realized that progress is obtainable. Maybe my few runs lately already increased my endurance and quicken my pacing. Maybe running outdoors along other random people pushed me to run faster. Maybe this shit ain't all that bad and instead of dreading my exercises, I should "shut up and just workout" because the aftermath always feels like gold! Can't wait to push myself to be more consistent next week, so that I not only have to do double the work the next day, but to also endure all of those endorphin-filled goodvibes that I felt today after my glorious run. ♀️#thefeels#golddigger#shutupandrun#runhappy#runnershigh#runtastic#runsd#runsandiego#100happyFITdaysWonTon#100happyday6
