I love it when the best laid plan actually happens.
I said I would run 3 miles today.
And I did.
I said I would run those 3 miles in less than 30 minutes.
How much closer could I have gotten? Actually, it was 29:59:38, so technically I could have been 21 mili-seconds slower.
But who's counting, right?
Today, was a wonderful day chock full of productivity at work and at home. Oh, and the weather is unbelievable.
On the record for tomorrow: 3 more punishing miles* plus a brisk walk with a great friend after work. It's something we're going to try and start. She wants to get in better shape and I want to hang out with her more. So, we thought it would be a good idea to meet once a week for a walk, which I'm sure will eventually turn into running (Okay, Kat, I know that's down the road, but let me optimistic, okay?).
*"Punishing miles" are my way of making myself pay for all of the slackedness over the last few weeks. I hatey hate hate running just 3 miles. There are always the hardest for me. Once I get past them I feel great, so I'm punishing myself by making myself run just 3 miles for 5 days. Oh, the things we do to ourselves....
One last thing...only cause I wanna be the FIRST to say it:
I HEART DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME.
I absolutely cannot wait until I can wake up on Sunday morning and know that I will have one extra hour of daylight waiting on me. It's like all is right with the world when I'm cranking out that 10 miles after work and the sun is still there to tell me goodnight.
I just can't wait.
