Thoughts on the Run, Summer Edition.

Mile 1- Tired legs…ugh…hot. Humid. Take it slow today.
Mile 2- It’s only been 2 miles, for real? Feels like 4.
Mile 3- Ahh that breeze, much needed. Keep it coming breeze.
Mile 3.5- Sweating like a wild banshee already. Just a few more miles to go.
Mile 4- Can’t wait to get home to make myself a smoothie. It’s going to taste amazing.
Mile 4.25- 9 minute miles feel like 7. Just shuffling along.
Mile 5- Zooming past the walkers. At least I’m faster than them.
Mile 5.1- Maybe I should just do 6 miles and call it a good day.
Mile 5.5- Nah, do 7. Man up, girlfriend.
Mile 6- Okay…almost done. Look at the sunrise! So pretty. Take a pic.

Mile 6.1- Doowwwwnhillllll!!! Feels so good! Breeze on my face again.
Mile 6.7- Back uphill. You’ve got this. Bring it home.
Mile 6.8- Is MapMyRun acting up? Oh it sure is. It would be at the very end of my run.
Mile 6.85- Okay, back up again. Don’t play with my emotions like that, MapMyRun. We’re supposed to be homies.
Mile 7- Made it! Run a little bit more, all the way to that fire hydrant.
Mile 7.03- Dunski!

  1. My running thoughts?

    (Insert your entire post here)

    That pretty much covers it 🙂 The only other thing I would add is that I do a lot of math during my runs…calculating pace, finish time, pace I need to run at to get time x in race y etc. and I don’t like math.

  2. Lol, I love this post! Lately, thoughts on my run have consisted of “Oh geez, this run will be tough. But…I haven’t run in 2 weeks, it’s going to be tough. Just take it easy and who cares about the pace.” I have to repeat that over and over to myself so I don’t get upset.

  3. I’m continually amazed that you are able to run so well in the Texas heat. Your thoughts on today’s run remind me of my thoughts at my race on Sunday. Why is it that the heat makes the miles go by more slowly? Way to get the run done when you weren’t feeling it! 🙂

  4. Ha I love this post! I feel like I’m constantly motivating/having a conversation with myself while running.
    Knowing that there’s a huge ice coffee the size of your head with your name on it when you’re done so suck it up, cupcake.

  5. I love these. Especially when you’re outdoors, it’s so easy for your mind to wander … which tends to be both a good thing and a bad thing for me. Thanks for the chuckle!

  6. Love it! The random thoughts during a run always crack me up 🙂 Nice job staying with it for the full 7! My friends and I intended to run 7 this am, but stopped at 5 🙂
