crazy weather, treadmill revelations

I haven’t done as well as I’d like at getting to the gym this week- the weather has been just wacky! But I made it today, and I was pleased with that.

I had an interesting realization today. I was plugging along on the treadmill at the gym, when I upped the speed a bit more and realized, although I can’t go as long at a higher speed, it’s not bad for a minute or two. I know this probably sounds obvious, but it’s a big deal to me. It’s kinda crazy to me, to run any distance at all. It’s kinda crazy to be a runner. But it’s true, and it’s pretty cool too. 🙂

My half marathon is in a week so there’s not really any time left to make big improvements for this race. The “next” race, though, won’t be for at least a few weeks and I can do plenty of things to improve before then!
