Day 18

Day 18 – 3 Miles – Up at 5:38(no alarm), little breakfast and out the door at 5:55.  It was one of those days.  I think this is the closest I have been to rolling over and saying “not this morning”.  But, I persevered, I got my feet on the floor, took my daily meds and vitamins, breakfast, and then “where are those pants?”  the one real problem with this dri-fit stuff is that a pair of pants is not much bigger than a sock! Also it is slippery and slips easily behind the dresser. Great!  Well, out the door in sweats.  Now I had decided yesterday, that today would be the day for picking up the pace.  Man, am I psyched! Not!  Down the hill, pushing, breathing hard, and I already feel like garbage.  Now the beginning of the up hill mile.  Still trying to push and stay focused.  About a mile in I was really thining about walking home.  Then the wheeze started.  I thought about the inhaler, but that was almost disasterous last time since it increases my heart rate.  Just keep plodding along.  I was able to stay focused and kept pushing (on and off).  I finished with a 100 yard dash and I finished with a pretty good time for me.  I think for me, pushing to run hard is much harder than pushing to run longer.   I definately don’t want to run like this everyday, but I will try to push the pace at least once a week.  Or maybe I’ll just roll over and go back to sleep and when I wake-up this nightmare will be over!
