With the changing of the times, it was still dark here in Waco at 6:30 when I laced up my shoes and hit the pavement. I got to watch the sunrise, and I must say it made me feel better after an emotional spring break. I realized even with difficult things happening in life, there’s still beautiful things to pay attention to in life.
I also ran watch-less!! I have come to rely on my NikePlus watch to tell me the time, my distance, my pace, even calories. I think I look every 30 seconds sometimes if I’m not thrilled about the run haha. Other times I won’t look at all until it’s over and it can be a very judgmental process – I didn’t run fast enough or as far as I wanted. So I’ve read some articles about running sans technology and since I was all packed for tour, today seemed like a great day to try it. At first it was really scary as if my security blanket was gone, but I realized time or pace didn’t matter. I just wanted a hard workout before spending all day on a bus and running without the distraction allowed me to watch the sunrise and feel the breeze.
I ate a good breakfast to get me ready for tour and packed up all my fruit. On the bus I started my meal sheet for the week, so writing everything down and knowing in advance which meals are at malls will help me plan. The goal is to lose weight on tour – at least I can’t drink on tour so that will help some.
Mileage – 5k, abs
QOD – All life demands struggle. Those who have everything given to them become lazy, selfish, and insensitive to the real values of life. The very striving and hard work that we so constantly try to avoid is the major building block in the person we are today.
