My motivation was low today but I went outside and ran! Started with 3km with some elevation gain and ran 1km downhill (which felt like flying!) afterwards. The first 20km felt effortlessly but the last 10km were tough especially because the wind blew against me all the time. But I did it.
Thumbs up for being able to run in shorts and a tank top. It was over 60 degrees today in January in Indiana which is pretty crazy so of course I had to take advantage. My legs were pretty sore and i was planning on it being a more chill run but I somehow cranked out a 7:08 first mile which is insane, but I definitely slowed down a lot after that and took a pretty hefty photo break in the middle. Overall I can’t complain though!

Yesterday I had my longest run in over two years- seven miles. For the past two years I’ve been rebuilding myself as a runner, celebrating every seemingly small milestone. I never thought I would see this distance again. With every run I feel more and more confident and more and more like myself. 🏃🏻♀️💜
Today’s run was the definition of rough- just like Wednesday my legs just felt HEAVY and I could also feel a blister forming on my foot, not going to lie it felt pretty damn awful. But I preserved and went for as long as I planned despite the pain. And I’m proud of myself for that. I allowed myself to go slower because that’s what my body needed. Sometimes you have to accept that you feel crappy and just push through it anyways.
