Oh to feel like a toddler

Finally I feel like me.  It's a great feeling.

This morning I got up to do my 3 miles that my scheduled called for.  I felt like a toddler learning how to walk for the first time.  It was weird and I really struggled in the first mile if I should just go back home or continue.  Well I continued on and it became easier as I went.

Here's how the run went down:

Mile 1 - 9:00
Mile 2 - 8:40
Mile 3 - 8:52
.63 - 8:46
Total miles: 3.63
Total Time: 32:04
Average Pace: 8:50
Calories burned: 365

I went sans mp3 player this morning.  This is the second run I've done this week with no music.  I'm thinking I like the music better because it gives me something to listen to and like on Mile 3 where all I wanted to do was walk, if I had music flowing in my ears, I probably would have ran faster, not sure.  So I'm going back to music on all my runs.  I enjoy it and this little test proved it.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Thursday.

  1. Glad it got better as you went along. I'm just the opposite with music, I can't listen to it... it seems I spend most of my time trying to get my headphones just right and I don't enjoy the run.
