So I wrote my "comeback from runner's depression" post, and I've acted on it.
Saturday: 3 mile run
Sunday: 5.5 mile run
Tuesday: 3 mile treadmill run (Incline variation)
Wednesday: (Morning) 1 mile elliptical 40 minutes weight training / (Afternoon) 3 mile run
...I'd say that's pretty darn good! Some personal growth that I've seen this week that has made a difference:
I finally feel good about getting up at 5am (eek). I'm ok with that.
I finally feel like when the over 10:00/mile signal beeps on my Garmin (S-L-O-W), I'm ok with that too.
I finally feel that at 5am, 3 miles will settle for an attempted 4 mile run. I'm ok with that also.
This is a step in the right direction. This is a step back to "I love working out", rather than "I have to work out". With a positive attitude, results are sure to follow (Evidence: Danny, winner of Biggest Loser two seasons ago, had the best attitude EVERRRRRR).
Second half of the week is going to be killer.
Let's do this.
