I rarely run on the weekends. I'm either too: lazy, tired, full, busy, cranky, or some other word that makes one not feel like running ;) Today I felt pretty good and had the time. I've been trying to eat better - eliminating some of the junk (if I eliminated all of it, what fun would life be?) but also adding in more fruits and vegetables. I honestly think its working. I feel better. Better how, I dont know. But just better, you know?
So I hopped on the treadmill to do a "quick" three. Fairly quick for me, but still a snails pace for most others. I started off a bit faster than I normally do and really pushed it for the third mile. Got off feeling good and still feel good an hour later. Instead of filling up with junk post run, I had some cottage cheese, a banana and some watermelon. The kids are still sleeping and I'm enjoying the silence. I've likely only got a few more minutes of it ...
