One thing I told myself that always made lacing up my sneakers a little easier was this:
Run as slow as you want to, but just get out there and run.
Since I am not a competitive person and wasn’t running the race with a specific time goal in mind, allowing myself to run at an easy pace on some days made the training much more enjoyable.
This morning I wanted to sleep in a bit, so I decided to skip the gym and take Sadie on a run with me so we could bypass her morning walk, thereby giving me more sleep time.
Since sleep took precedence over the gym, I woke up committed to go for a run to combine Sadie’s morning exercise and my workout in one.
Though my body knew a run would feel great, my head wasn’t quite in the mood. I then remembered my personal “just do it” phrase from my half marathon training. Run as slow as you want to, but just get out there and run.
I did just that and completed five miles. 😀
Post-run, I came inside for a delicious breakfast.
I ate about 3/4 of a large Gala apple before slicing up the remaining quarter to use in a toasted English muffin breakfast sandwich, complete with peanut butter and cinnamon.
The combination of the creamy peanut butter with the sweet, crisp apple was a winner!
Tasty! I want another one… 😉
Thank you all for you words of advice and travel insights about our potential honeymoon hiccup. I plan to call the resort where we’re staying this morning and will definitely keep you guys posted. 😀
Enjoy your day!
