Finished my run strong, my thoughts on it … not so much

February 16, 2012

It’s nice to be writing these posts at 5 a.m. again. It would be even nicer if I could get back to starting my day at this time rather than ending it.

Not much else to say though. Today was a bit easier than last time. I slowed down my pace and didn’t feel quite as exhausted as I did on Monday. The fog was thick again as well, but on the upside, it was t-shirt weather.

I guess the one thing that stuck out was my pre-run pep talk/debate (which has unfortunately become a ritual). The thing made it different from the rest of my last-ditch efforts to remain a lazy ass sounded way more poetically impressive when I crafted it in my head 20 minutes ago. However, I’ve since showered, made breakfast and eaten said breakfast. At this point, my mind would rather look forward to reading a book and passing out than accurately remember the clever way I worded something about making a routine and doing things even though you might not feel like doing them.

At the end of the day (literally, for me) some of the things that originally got me past the “running sucks” phase are beginning to click again. Today’s run (W4D2) was the same one where I began to lose enthusiasm back in September. I seem to be doing better this time around.

I’ve been listening to podcasts this week so I don’t have any music in mind at the moment. What I will leave you with this morning is one of my favorite Youtube musicians, Kiersten Holine,  playing one of my favorite songs.
