I truly apologize for my lack of postings lately. Running wise I have been doing ok, but mentally I have hit a wall. I am sooo tired. I think its because I have never run this much in my life. I have never sweat this much. I have never even worked this hard before. Because of that, I should have been taking better care of the rest of my life. Eating well and sleeping are so important!
On a happier note! Today was the first day in my life that I ran a mile under 13 minutes! 12:36 to be exact! I am just thrilled that I am seeing improvement on the timer. In comparison to how I used to run, I feel like I am sprinting now. Not that it is working me that hard, I am just going so fast :)
As a side note: Someone once told me,"Once an addict, always an addict." Even though I have never had an unhealthy addiction, I have always seen myself as an addict. I love trying new things and I throw myself into it 120 percent to the point of obsession then I move on. I go crazy doing my best at whatever it is that i am "addicted" to at that time and then I drop it for the next thing. Of course naturally my fear would be that running has become an addiction for me rather than a life style change. To keep that from happening, I have picked up my next true addiction... knitting! I am obsessed! This is what I have done so far:
If anyone would like a cute hat knitted for their child let me know. :)
Happy running friends!
