Waking up after my nightshift I knew I had to get my run in. When I left work this morning it was pouring rain, I was actually so tired and bummed because I thought I wasn’t going to be able to run. But low and behold when I woke up it had cleared up. The first thing I did was have a glass of water, and a cup of Cranberry Green Tea. Then got dressed and ready to go. Before I was even able to get my runners on Sadie came running out of the bedroom and sat at the door. So I took her and my grand puppy Mook for a walk around the block ( as my warm up) and then hooked up LOLA and away we went.
I have been struggling with getting my time under 30 min for 5 km. It has been a nagging push at me. I always seem to start off a little slow but then by the last Km. I am able to book it and speed up enough. Tomorrow is my long run 24 km and I’m supposed to do it a pace time. Is it funny that I’m actually excited ? I mean really 24 km and I’m excited. Who would have ever thought this used to be 250 lb middle age woman would be excited about a long run of 24 km. I mean I was lucky if I could walk half a block and now I’m running 24 km?! I have been blessed with a second chance in life, to live my life the fullest. I have been able to do things I never thought possible.
Here I go , pushing myself and striding for my Bucket list. Do you have something on your bucket list that you never thought you could do ? Look it up see what you need to do to achieve that , you might be surprised it might be more reachable then you think. We only have one life and why not live it to the fullest!!
Well now I need to get ready for work , and get my meal prepping done !! Looking forward to my long run tomorrow. Have a wonderful Saturday Night !! Look forward to your comments. Let’s see what things are on our bucket list !!
