What happens when the music dies....
So I went out on my long run today to train for my half marathon in Oct. I ran 12.88k and my music crapped put on me at 9.5k...sucks....as I didn't want to stop and fix it or see what was wrong cause really I just wanted to get the F home at that point! :S
So now I'm running with just me and my brain...not so good! Now I don't know about you but I am able to have like 5 different conversations in my head at once. So voice #1 was listening as voice #2 and voice #3 had a talk that went like this:
V2: Crap this is hard!....why do I do things that are SO hard!?
V3: because its a good challenge and it makes you fell good once you are done it
V2: But you just did the Triathlon and that was hard already and now this half marathon!....it's too many hard things all at once! You shouldn't do this marathon you need more time in between......
V3: And that's why I signed up and paid at the start of the year so that I couldn't back out!
V2: BUT IT'S HARD!!!!
V3: Yes it is hard, but I set a goal and I'm going to stick to it and finish it
V2: So your going to do the half marathon then!?
LOL!!!! Ok so I NEED to get my music fixed ASAP!!! LOL!!!....also something new I tried today was wearing a water belt. Now that I am going further I NEED water cause the gum is just not cutting it. So check me out ready to go out for my run this morning with my new fancy-smancy water belt on :) And YES my hair band matches my coat! :-) I LOVE being all matchy-matchy!
'Live in YOUR Awesome!'
