Is it bad that I couldn’t wait to break last month’s total mileage? LOL I totally can’t wait to log in every day just to see what I already know. It’s like this big reward to see it climbing up every day. Then, of course, the second thing I like to do is send my mileage to my boss who is running a half marathon in September. HAHA I just love keeping that guy motivated…cuz he totally isn’t! I don’t know what I’ll do when I hit the number that is unbeatable….whatever it is. It will probably be this big let down that I have to accept as the norm for me…kind of like my 9:15 mile. It’s good for “someone my age” but it totally bugs me when I am slower than that and gives me this crazy high when I am under it. I hate it when my phone isn’t charged at run time because then I can’t see my splits for each mile or the elevation even though I KNOW WHAT IT IS! I just like seeing it. I love when it’s time to run and hate it when it’s over, especially when Rob is running more miles. It doesn’t matter that I might have just run 8 miles or 9. If he’s running after I finish I just keep wishing I were still running. I’ve even taken up running with my daughter who is just getting started and still at 1 and 2 miles. I’ll run after work even if I ran that morning. I should probably be more concerned for my health but I drink water, eat well, stop when I need to and don’t have aches and pains….knock knock (on wood that is)
So given all of these things, I think I might be a runner? LOL I hope I never stop.
August’s totals- Makes me smile!
