Not 5 Miles

Happy Friday!

I have a confession….the other day when I said I ran 5 miles, I only ran 4 miles. Sad smile  I ran what I thought was my old 5 mile route but I wore my Garmin yesterday and it was only 4 miles.  NARDS.

I made sure and ran 5 miles yesterday morning, but I’m sure you can understand how I felt when I got to what I thought was my last mile and looked down to see I had two more miles! Talk about taking the wind out of my sails.


I managed to push through. It was a slow 5 miles, but 5 miles is 5 miles!  Once I get comfy in this distance again, I’ll start picking up the pace.

It was pretty chilly yesterday morning. When I first got out there I remembered that I don’t like running in the cold, but then I talked myself into getting through the first mile and seeing how I felt.  It’s never a good idea for me to make any decisions until after the first mile. It takes that long for my body to get warmed up and my mind to relax.

I felt great once I was warmed up and enjoyed every second of the remainder of the run.  Once home, I leashed up the girls and took them for a walk.

I spent most of yesterday trying to plan our vacations for the year.  Why does something that will be so fun have to give me a headache trying to plan it!?  I eventually gave up and went to Pinterest!
