Y'all, I have done NOTHING as far as fitness goes today and it's been awesome! I'm now running four days a week and going to a fitness class two days a week, so I look so forward to an off day. I'm not saying I don't feel fabulous after a workout, just saying a day to do nothing is nice, too. Today I am SO SORE from yesterday's fitness class and run! If you're looking for a good class to work every muscle in your entire body, check out Natalie at Jay-Lo Fitness in Olive Branch. She'll tear you up on Mondays and Fridays at 5am! SO worth the $5!
So my training just gets harder and harder which means it's easier and easier to become discouraged. I've reached so many milestones since I started running. It's just hard sometimes to keep that in mind in the midst of a difficult run. I was thinking as I was running last night about all the people that tell me they LOVE running. They CRAVE running. Can I please get to that point??? I think I can honestly say I crave it. Usually getting out the door to run is not the problem and on days I don't run I almost feel guilty. But once I'm actually doing it, I can't wait for it to be over. It's tough. It's hard work. Sometimes it just plain sucks. So I don't think I can say I love it yet. Is it possible to crave something you don't yet love? Apparently so. Or maybe I just have a love/hate relationship with running for right now. I know I've complained a lot recently. I'm not giving up. I just want to be able to come back to this after I finish that 13.1 and know exactly how I was feeling today.
If it was easy, everyone would do it, right?! :)
