My run this morning was anything but good.
My legs felt like lead. Like they couldn’t move. Like each step took all the energy I had at 4:00 in the morning.
I would think that after running outside, running on the treadmill would be somewhat easier, but it wasn’t. It was a 1,000 times harder.
I had that mental block.
The one that tells you that you can’t run. That your legs won’t move. That you should walk. That there’s something wrong with you. That you will never be a runner. That you should just quit.
And you know what the mental block won today.
I got off the treadmill after 25 minutes feeling defeated.
Instead of having that good feeling the rest of the day, I will walk around with guilt.
At least I’m thinking of what I can do next time.
Do you know what I think I’ve been doing wrong?
Not stretching after I run, and this morning my legs just felt so tight.
After the not so good treadmill run I went in and decided what to have for breakfast.
Half an everything bagel with a egg for dipping on the side.
I also used some bacon salt to sprinkle on my eggs.
I saw this over on Mary’s blog and knew I just had to have it. I went right onto Amazon and ordered me a jar on two, and I have to say that I love it! I’ve used it on my salads and eggs so far and it goes perfectly on both. You get that bacon-y taste, but without the bacon.
At least breakfast was good.
