Last night after work, I met up with Kim and Sara at Half Day Forest Preserve for a 4 mile run. Well, 4 miles for me. I think Kim ran 12 and Sara ran 9? And I struggled through my 4 miles. Isn’t it weird how you can feel so great for one run and like your legs weigh one hundred pounds during another? That’s the mystery of running.
Thankfully Kim and Sara were nice and hung out with my slow ass as we ran! Even though my legs felt like jello, I had so much fun chatting with the girls that the miles flew by. I was home in time to make dinner and I was able to fit in a work out, some socializing and a healthy meal into my Monday night. What a winning Monday! Now I feel like this week is going to be a good one, and that’s a great feeling.
Do you feel like Monday sets the tone for your whole week? Do you use your friends to hold you accountable for workouts? (If not, you should!)
