And by Hard Run I don’t mean I ran hard but wow was it ever a hard run. Some days I go running and just float through my 5k and feel like I could do more with no troubles. And some days, like today, ever step is a hard won battle. I was sore from the start, and hungry, and breathing hard. It takes me a long time to warm up normally, 2-3km, but today it was only at 4.25k that I felt warmed up…which was sad as I was only running 5k. But I survived, with a lot of bargaining. I totally lie to myself which for some reason makes me feel better – I will only do 2k today, and then okay just 3k and then well only 4k and I will walk the last bit. But somehow I always get through the whole run. They speak about the runner’s high. I only get it when I am done. I am always so happy that I did the run and am finished it that I hit full-on perky mode.
