Today's run was a 5 miler. I did my usual warm up, then started out on my run just as the sun was coming up over the mountains. I felt pretty good in most respects. I didn't feel too tired this morning, and no headache, which is of course a huge plus. My only issue was that my legs felt very heavy. I hate those runs when it feels twice as hard as usual to lift each leg, over and over and over... So, I tried to focus on my surroundings, looking at the scenery, watching for wildlife, waving at my friends and neighbors as they drove by me. It seemed a good enough distraction, and I was able to complete the 5 miles no problem, and I even started to feel a little "lighter" on my feet for the last mile or so. See, this is such a mental challenge. Gaining control over my thoughts means gaining control over my body - at least to some extent! When I got home I also did workout 1 of the 30 Day Shred DVD.
