I've been running for 30 mins three times a week for a couple of months now, all thanks to Laura and the podcasts. My enjoyment normally kicks in when I've finished the run and I get that sense of accomplishment.
Today's run was different. After settling into my stride, I realised that I was enjoying the run while I was actually doing it! I felt like I could've run for hours (unfortunately, that pesky thing called 'work' put paid to that idea!). I've analysed what I was doing differently to my previous runs and I'm certain that everything was the same: same treadmill, same speed, same trainers ... even the same music!!
This was a great boost after a dodgy run on Monday, and I'm already looking forward to doing it again on Friday.
Incidentally, there was a bloke who I hadn't seen at the gym before huffing and puffing at the machine next to me. I wanted to tell him to hang on in there and keep at it. I didn't though ... cos I was having too much of a good time!
Have a great day, everyone.
