Tiny Run!

On Monday nights, some of the girls from my Girls on the Run team meet up for an informal run club.  I look forward to seeing the girls, but I haven’t been able to run with them for the last two weeks.

I was giddy all day long yesterday in anticipation of a teeny little run.  My legs were itching to go.

And they did… slowly.  I ran 1.5 miles around the track, alternating laps of running with laps of walking.  So really, I ran .75 mile and walked .75 mile.  My joints bothered me a little bit, but not enough to keep me from my goal of 1 – 2 miles.

It would be really easy to be frustrated right now.  Two and a half weeks ago, I was going out for long runs over two hours long, usually after a short bike ride.  Now, 1.5 miles feels like plenty.  How is it possible for that to happen so quickly?

But instead of getting down, I am choosing positivity.  I’m grateful that I am able to start running already, even if it’s just little runs.  I’m glad my swim felt amazing over the weekend.  I’m looking forward to getting my groove back, little by little.  Because a little is a whole lot better than nothing.

Do you believe in the power of a positive attitude?  What do you choose to be positive about?

  1. Attitude is everything! Congrats to you for having such a positive one and for getting your groove back!

  2. I do believe in the power of a positive attitude and I think that yours will carry you far! Good luck and I am sure that you will be back to rocking your runs in no time :-)

  3. It’s all about the attitude! Don’t want to become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

  4. I have to choose a positive attitude in terms of running right now… if I didn’t, this stress fracture I’m dealing with now could REALLY bring me down (as opposed to just slightly bringing me down!) Nice work at setting and reaching realistic goals for where you are now! That’s hard sometimes! :-)

  5. LOVE your positive attitude and thank you for the reminder!!!! I needed this today :)

  6. Attitude is contagious!!!! Way to stay positive when things are tough!
