It was THAT HUMID last night during our 8 mi run! STEAMY!!! I would have quit if it weren't for my hubby - and Mumford and Sons - pushing me!! I brought out the Lamaze breathing techniques for the second half, too. If I can endure childbirth without pain medication, I can do anything. Pain is pain ... and pain will go away. It's temporary.
Clothes were soaked, hair was drenched, stomach cramps endured, but somehow I ended with significant, negative splits! Sometimes I doubt myself, when I'm feeling like ICK during my runs, but then part of me says, "I KNOW I can do it. I've done it before. I will do it again. I can push myself.".
Never judge a run by the first mile or two.
You've got this ...
