Another Day, Another Mile

I reached another "mile"stone in the early days of the training schedule this morning. We added another mile onto the training runs, meaning we're up to 3 miles.

It was the first time I've ever run 3 miles.

I woke up early this morning to good running weather -- not too hot with the brightness of late summer sun. Even though running in the morning seems harder for me, I really do enjoy it.

Everything seems quieter, despite the sounds of the country in the morning. It's a nice way to start the day.

Plus, I feel better during the day and I've already accomplished something before I get to my desk.

It was surprising to me that I didn't really notice the extra mile on this morning's run. That's a good sign. The training schedule must be working.

It felt good to make it easily through 3 miles, but I couldn't help but remind myself that the race will have another 10 miles on top of it. Plenty of time to work up to that.

  1. This blog site is so intriguing that I feel drawn to read it everyday. I wake with such eager anticipation each morning along with this overwhelming desire to run to my laptop to see the latest entry. You have inspired me to be a better me, just not sure how that can be.
