When I started out for my run today, I wasn't sure what to expect. I was feeling a little achy and thought I might have to cut my run short today. My training plan has me increasing my base miles and I am trying to be cautious since I don't want to injure myself so early in the training season. But, amazingly as I started running it felt good so I kept to plan and ran the full six miles. I was happy that I got out and ran today instead of just preemptively deciding that I should take the day off. My body surprised me. But then again, every day I run I am surprised. As I have said before, I never thought I would be able to run like this. I am so thankful for just the ability to be able to do it right now.

I added a page that lists my "toolkit" for running. Would love to see comments from others about lessons learned or things that have helped them improve or increase their running.

Have you surprised yourself lately? I really want to push myself this year... do things outside of my comfort zone in many areas of my life. I love the beginning of a new year.. it's like a new three ring notebook. Blank pages waiting to be written upon. Anything is possible.

  1. Life is a blank notebook! Great analogy :)

    I have surprised myself lately in trying some new things like a fuel belt and taking an unscheduled rest day.

    Great job with the workouts! I like your new training list.
