I woke up at the crack of dawn to begin the One Hour Runner plan today. I'm taking a day class this week. Running any time I damn well please isn't an option. And I was hoping that early runs would keep me energized for the rest of the day. Well, that's what I thought. But the course is so boring. All the energy I had was wrung out of me. It's ridiculous. I wanna go to bed, but I need to study first :(
Back to today's run..it was nothing I haven't done before. I have to run for 30min for the first 3 weeks. I hope to get more comfortable with that pretty soon. Today, I went really slow. See, I overdid it on the hot chocolate this morning. I just had too much in my stomach, and if I went any faster, I would have needed a toss my cookies break. So I did what I could. Time seemed to fly though. Maybe it had something to do with having music(replaced my earbuds). And I actually paid attention to it. I wanted to sing along, but that would have made the jog harder than it needed to be. And I wasn't in the mood. I already had a pain in my side. So my goal for Wednesday is to not have too much going on in my tummy.
Music: James Brown All Time 20 Greatest Hits
I was listening to Aretha on my way to the Y. She put me in the mood for some old school. Too bad Re-Re is too slow for the track. JB is more upbeat.
