My Sunday run didn't happen. I started it, but I just wasn't able to keep going. I had to sit down and look at what the problem could be. Both of my bad runs had something in common. I took those runs later in the day. I think I like getting up at the crack of dawn. It's my time; I have no distractions. Lucky for me, most races are held early in the morning.
This morning's run went beautifully. Twenty minutes! I did it. I don't mean to brag, I'm just so pleased. Week 5 is over. The program is taking me a little longer than I planned, but I'm still doing very well.
I'll be on vacation for the last two weeks of the program. I'm a little nervous about that. I'll be in the mountains; I'll be running at a much higher elevation (about 10,000 feet higher!) than I am at home. The temperatures will be much colder, too. I've bought myself some very warm running clothes. I think there's a treadmill that I can use, but I'd really like to run outside if I can. The view is beautiful. I'm really looking forward to this vacation.
Prevacation excitement is a new feeling for me. I used to dread going on vacation. Flying while obese is not any fun. I was always afraid that the airline would tell me I was too fat to fit in one seat. I shudder to think about it. Because I'm able to relax before vacation, I can arrive in a good mindset. This helps everyone have a much better time. I plan to try so many new things during this trip. I'm going skiing & sledding. I'm going to build a snowman. I'll be sure to post pictures & stories of my adventures.
Happy Running, y'all.
