So, this morning, I totally ran the Ocean Springs bridge. Yep. From the OS side to Biloxi side with a little extra (which was a full 2 miles)...then walked back to the bridge and ran back almost to the top of the main hill before walking again for a tenth. Then, ran the last tenth up and ran down the rest of the way!
So, with only walking about a quarter-mile, I ran 4 miles!!
I'm super excited at this jump in my progress. I was talking with my bestie/training buddy just yesterday about how most of my struggle is mental. So, today, I was determined to overcome that...and I did!
I figured out that my shin splints were probably caused by the tight turns at the gym track...so, not running there anymore unless I absolutely have to. Gonna try to stick to early morning outside runs - they simulate the race, anyway!
Hope everyone is having a fantastic Monday!
Remember, "this is the day that the Lord has made...rejoice and be glad in it!"
ALSO, "give me THIS day my daily bread."
God has enough grace, mercy, patience, love, kindness, joy, faith, and whatever else you need TODAY.
What's the farthest you've run without stopping? (C'mon, I know there's a few marathoners out there!)
