Oh What a Feeling!

14 Nov

It was about 20 degrees outside yesterday morning when it was time for me to go to the Y. I didn’t want to go. I wanted to go and take a hot shower to warm up. But, I knew I needed it so I went.

I did my upper body weights and some squats and then hit the treadmill for a run. I figured I’d do around 2 miles and call it quits. The run started to feel so good yesterday with all the stress I’ve been under, I just kept going. I knew if I stopped the workout would be over and the stress would come back. So I kept going. I ended up doing a full 5K on the treadmill and I smashed my PR.

My previous PR was 39:27 and yesterday I finished in 35:37! I was so excited. It was such a rush. What a great feeling! And I felt good for hours after the run, very calm and content.
