What? Did I just run 10 miles? Sure did!
It felt awesome to hit the road and finally complete a double digit run!!! Mark it down, I am officially something like a bad ass! I love the feeling after defeating a milestone, I am on top of the world right now. I could probably go back out an run another 10... OK, so maybe not 10 but you know what I mean. I left the house a little later than I wanted to (7:30am), it was 73 degrees when I finished (felt way warmer). Mile 9 totally sucked and I finished a little weaker than I was shooting for but there is always redemption next week!
Next Saturday I have plans for 11 miles! I might to the Phoenix 10K doubleheader... It would be the 10K and the 5K race back to back... then I would just run an additional 2 miles... (Hope Jess comes down, it would make it super fun!)
It was a big week, not only did I do my first double digit run but I also pushed into the 20+ miles a week! Its amazing how far a little determination will get you. For any of you out there thinking of taking on this challenge, I know you can do it! Nobody said it would be easy... but the hard work is the fun part!
Hard Work + Motivation = More Hard Work
**Seems like the harder I push myself the more I want to!**
(Or a "positive feedback loop" for all you smart people out there!)
