My aunt said it was a mile to go from the corner by my work to the bridge. Well that's what I heard, what she meant was it was a mile down AND back. Felt amazing when I thought I did a mile in about 8 mins. I realized it wasn't a mile but maybe one day I can do a mile in 8mins.
Unfortunately since it was windy we avoided the open space that we ran around last week. It was more comfortable but we didn't know the exact mileage. I thought I did 4 miles in 63mins, but when I got home I realized to get 4 entire miles I had to include the 3 block walk to my car. That brought my total time to 66mins.
The last mile I had to start chanting "but it doesn't matter." I was unconsciously having a stream of negative thoughts: I'm cold, it's too far, my legs ache, my legs are freezing, I want to stop, the wind is too cold. I actually started saying, yellings, sing/chanting "but it doesn't matter" then very far in the back of my mind I could hear I can do this. "But it doesn't matter"...I can do this.
Tonight I have homework and we going to a country/comedy concert and wild west fest. Then I have a 2 pg paper due by 6am Monday (aka 10pm Sunday). What is your weekend plan? What can you do?
