After postponing my run yesterday (head cold), I thought that I had better just do it so as not to fall too far behind. I aim to graduate by next Sunday, my 43rd birthday. I had it in my head that I would graduate and be a true runner by then.
My head was pounding, nose stuffed up and I felt dizzy when I woke up. I took cold medicine, almost talked myself out of it, but then decided that I had better just do it.
When I headed out it was still early and it was raining lightly. As I got into the run I thought of the posts I had read over the past couple of days and thought just do it, one foot in front of the other.
Well I did it, nothing in the tank for Laura at the end I am afraid, but I finished! It felt so good to get it done that I count this as a "good run". Week 9 here I come!
