I have nailed every single workout.
I have 5 long runs under my belt.
With 6 weeks of training I have already ran almost as many miles as I did in the 12 weeks training for CIM.
I saw my chiropractor twice today for adjustments and had a good chat with my coach on the phone. I will be meeting up with my coach tomorrow so that he can assess the situation and we can come up with a game plan to get back on track. Keeping my fingers crossed for some good news!
Since I am super down in the dumps I thought it was good for me to go back and think some positive thoughts of why I run and why I love it so much. I hate to admit this, but I actually thought about (gasp) throwing in the towel on Eugene today. That was really the frustrated Tasha talking, not the "go getter, balls to the wall" Tasha.
I run because:
It makes me happy
Allows me to set goals for myself and push myself on a daily basis
It makes me to feel good about myself
I love the competition
I like to improve myself every year
I love a new PR
I love beating men (especially in my pink Team Sparkle skirt!)
I want to be healthy
I love the adrenaline from it
I saw this video a couple of weeks ago on Christy @ My Dirt Road Anthem's blog and loved it! I even told her that I might have to steal this video for a future blog post.....
Questions for you:
Why do you run?
