Going out for my last run I had full intentions on doing a nice long distance run. But after all of the rain that had been coming down lately, the bridges that I was about to cross under had been flooded. I was then forced to take a different route. So, as I was running and thinking of different excuses I could use to bail (including cutting my run short and doing a core workout or yoga) luckily I snapped myself out of it and said “nope, today is hill training day.” After the 6k run I re-stretched, took a little walk and headed for the hills. It was 3k worth of hill repeats for this running girl. I was feeling pretty good but I told myself that I would keep doing hills until either a) it started to rain or b) I reached 10k. None of these options happened. Why? Because I went to change my music after my playlist ended and accidentally pressed “end workout” after 9km. I took that as a sign and took a little stroll home.

I’m not sure why I was so filled with giving myself options and excuses during this run. But I do know that once you start giving yourself excuses it’s easier to get in the habit of constantly detouring. So, it’s time to start a new training program so that my runs don’t feel like a chore.
