I finally came to the realization that I can only realistically expect myself to get my ass out of bed for my 6 AM workout 1x/week. So, starting next week, that day is Thursday. However, since I will soon be work-free on Mondays, I can go to the weights class that day, and not at 6 AM (I think it’s at 10 or something).
Today I ran. Although I had a couple of wonky knee moments, it was good. I ran as slowly as I could and really concentrated on my form, and it worked. I ran for 45 minutes, and I feel amazing. It was one of those runs that you don’t want to finish, and when you do finish, you feel so very, very good.
I was listening to an interview that Kristin Armstrong did with her ex-husband Lance right before the Boston Marathon, and besides being really impressed that they get along so well (she called him her “was-bund”), I was intrigued about how they view running. Kristin said that after a good run, she felt “clean” – Lance said he only gets that from biking. I think I know what she meant by clean…and I also think it’s funny that the architect is the cyclist, and I am the runner.
In other news, I think I found my next Halloween costume:
It’s so me. 🙂
