Saturday we were both not in the mood to go running (which I really do have to make myself go upstairs and change and then walk out the door) and it was a complete mental game. It seemed I was too hot, or my toe hurt, or something else BUT we kept going. Jake kept pushing me and we made it to the gym. It was only 1.8 miles to the gym so we went inside to get some water and then we did 2 miles on the stationary bike for a rest. Back outside I felt another burst of energy so we ran back through the neighborhood. When we got back to the house I just knew I could go more so I asked Jake how much more do we have and he said .3 of a mile. I knew I had to do it, I was so close! So we did! I felt liberation...as Jase Robertson would say.
Anywase we went again last night and did 2 miles which I was still really proud of. It is week 5 of this new journey and it's great. Last night was sooo hot tho, it was in the 80's yesterday and it just seemed too humid. That is what scares me about Arkansas weather so if anyone has any tips on how to stay motivated with hot weather please help! There is something strangely satisfying about having sweat pouring off of you tho...I know gross...but awesome! haha
Things I have GOT to remember:
- DRINK WATER!!!!!!
- Don't just pay attention to the scale
- Thick socks
- KEEP GOING EMILY!! YOU CAN DO IT!
- Drink my green tea every day!
- Don't push too hard or you'll burn out.
- DRINK WATER!!!!
