G.A.C.= Genesys Athletic Club. I give a lot up for this membership. Mainly my clothing allowance. A girl loves her closet, but this girl loves her Athletic Club.
8:30 AM- Out of the house a little late.
Rolling Rolling Rolling- One word, three times! A whole lot of rolling and stretching before sweating.
TREADMILL- Not the DREADMILL. I wasn't dreading the machine I was dreading the thought of my injury preventing me from running.
Clint Verran- Good Ole Clint said that I could try to run a treadmill. If I was going to try and run that was a better option. It is more even than running outside.
Coaching- ARE YOU TEACHABLE?? "Shoulder Back, run with your core, light as a feather, BREATH." As my feet began to turn over on the treadmill I constantly spoke to myself. It is one thing to coach yourself, it is another to DO what your coach says! As I began to get fatigued I had to coach LOUDER to myself. I had to remind myself the importance of running properly.
3 MILES!- "If it is worth the Prize it is Worth the FIGHT" Sometimes the fight isn't going all out. For me the fight was NOT performing with intensity, it was intensely staying disciplined for the bigger picture.
IT BAND- Yes, for those of you wondering. Yes, the friction across my knee began as I approached 2 and 1/2miles. The sweat from anxiety was dripping down my temples. I tried to remain positive. I tried to keep happy thoughts. I tried to keep my glass half full for just a little bit longer. And I did!
Contentment- 3 miles not fast, not slow but consistent. As the laps turned into miles my face turned into smiles!
Cold Plunge- After running, rolling, stretching and abs I headed to the torture chamber. 15 minutes in the frigid waters. The most welcomed pain.
Distance- 3 miles
Verse of the Day- "Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content" Phil 4:11
