Today I had planed a 3.5 mile run! I was so ready for it. I laced up my shoes and off I went! I felt great, the weather was PERFECT, and I found my groove quickly.
I didn't plan on running the whole thing. However as I would reach a certain point along the route I would talk to myself saying if you just make it to that light pole then you can stop and walk, okay you made it to the light pole and your still going Lindsay you can go further go to the stoplight! I would make it to the light and still be okay. I played the MENTAL game a few times along the route. Guess who won that MENTAL GAME??? ME LINDSAY WON round 1 of the MENTAL game. I NEVER EVER stopped running. I really can see after my run today, why people say running is such a MENTAL thing. I felt awesome after!
My stats ended up at:
3.5 miles exactly
I am still super slow. I am not worrying about how long it takes me to get it done as long as I get it done. I am a beginner and want to take it sloooooow :)
Did everyone have a good Saturday run?
