Surprise 15km Success!

Screen shot 2012-07-16 at 1.55.28 PM

I did not expect to have a great run today…I woke up with a headache and a very annoying recurring hip pain, the temperature outside was minus 25 (!), I knew I had a very packed schedule of things to do today and everything got off to a really late start because my car wouldn’t start and hubby had to come back to boost it after dropping the kids at school. So by the time I got to the gym, I was super cranky. In fact I almost didn’t go. It was one of those times when you are in major conflict with that inner voice- I don’t want to go to the gym. You have to go to the gym. Don’t want to, have to…..

However, I am so glad I did because…..I broke 15km of continuous running this morning! Wow! I did not expect things to turn around like that! This makes me feel confident that the half marathon is well within reach. I managed to get into The Zone despite my cranky morning and stay there until I reached success :) Of course now, I am dead tired, super stiff, sore and seriously in need of a nap but it feels AWESOME!!!

Perhaps I owe some of today’s success to the Manitoba Harvest Hemp Foods products that I have been sampling the past few days? Not sure but maybe, just maybe! As a #Sweat Pink Ambassador, I have been fortunate enough to be able to sample some of these fabulous products and will be providing feedback at the end of this week after I try out a few more recipes!

    It’s always that first kick in the butt that’s the hardest. We never regret a workout once it’s done, but sometimes just getting started takes some major negotiations with ourselves.

    Wow that’s amazing! Congrats. The weather certainly does not lend itself to long comfortable runs… I usually run to and from work but with this weather is decided to put a pin in it!
