Running Inspiration

Posted by CheapRunnerRhoda

Congrats to the 2 CRM's for doing the Du. Once again I had Race Envy but it was so great to be able to be there and see them race!

I have been digging my heals in a little lately and procrastinating doing some if my long runs. I am comfortable with distances I have done before but with training for my first full marathon I am getting into distances I have never done before. It's difficult and I realize it is more a battle of the mind. I turned to google for some inspiration and here are a couple things that have helped me refocus.

Each time I have completed a new long distance for myself I think "wow, I did that and I didn't hate it".

I recently placed an order with Gymdoll.

This is what I have to remind myself. I want to do this and I will so I have to "suck it up" and go for it.

Running is truly a joy for me and I feel so great when I am out there running so I will keep remembering how I feel when I am done as I add on the kilometres.

  5. Love love love Gymdoll! I have the skull with the cross bones (that are weight bars) tank top and I love it, so comfy!

    Longest I have ever run is 26.8 something miles. It was during a marathon but due to shitty tangent running and so many people I ran long...errr that sucked! :)

  13. Your new tank is adorable!
    I love long runs as long as I'm mentally prepared for it. The longest distance for me is 13.25 only because a race course as off a bit.
