That has been my motto as of late. Any time I feel like stopping, I think of Tom Hanks in A League of Their Own telling the ‘girls’ that there’s no crying in baseball. It keeps me going. For a bit.
I’ve come to terms with the fact that I might not make it the full 3.2 miles on April 11. But I really want to. So I’m stepping up my training. This morning I had one of my best runs to date. So I decided to go again tonight.
About 8 minutes in, my sides started hurting. At 10 minutes the blister on my foot was about to burst. At 11 minutes I walked. I tried running a couple times after that, but just couldn’t do it. I guess the experts are right. Rest periods are necessary.
Sorry for yet another lame post about running, but it is pretty much taking over my life these days. If I don’t make it all the way through this 5K I will sign up for another one.
Oh, and I’m in love with Lady GaGa’s “Just Dance” right now. I somehow forgot to include it in my last list of running tunes.
