Due to travel, time restraints, feeling like an overstuffed pillow after Christmas and now a chesty cold, I haven't run for just over a week. This morning I woke up full of congestion and feeling doubtful that I could run. I told myself I'd try a few ten minute runs and if that didn't work, I'd get a good walk in. I ran for 30 minutes!! Ok, my time wasn't fantastic, but I did it. People I passed must have thought they were about to be run over by a locomotive, but I did it. Just put your sneakers on and go out the door, that's the hardest part. Then have faith in your body, your training and your ability.
