I cannot believe that I just ran 4 MILES tonight! How did I do that? Considering that I was struggling for even 2.25 miles just days ago? Well, it was 100 degrees out today and way to hot to run outside so I did something I haven't done in a while and took my running to the treadmill! I can't tell you how encouraging this is to me. A little over a month ago I could barely do 2 miles on the tread, no joke! I've been struggling for 2 miles outdoors for so long now that I wasn't seeing how much running outdoors is doing for me, SERIOUSLY! On top of this all, I wasn't even dying by the end. I felt like I had exerted a lot of good energy but that I could have done more. I didn't however, because of my dang hip flexors. I have found a cure for this though. I was searching the web a few weeks back when I stumbled onto an article where they showed you a few good stretches for that area, and it works! So monday is another run day, outside this time, and I am now going to push for 3 miles because if I can do 4 on the tread then I don't see why I couldn't do 3:) I really needed this boost, ladies. I was starting to flounder a bit due to my lack of progress, but in reality I've been making progress by leaps and bounds! Hell yeah, I'M BACK!
