Breakdown of a 4 Mile Run

These are the thoughts in my head as I run my usual 4.2 mile route three to five times a week.

Mile 0 to .5 - I should try to go 5 miles today

Mile .5 to 1 - I could go 6 miles today, no problem. *Note: I'm going downhill here*

Mile 1 to 2 - Maybe just 5 miles today. *Note: A few inclines along this portion of the route*

Mile 2 to 3 - Yeah 4 miles is good for today. *Note: The inclines continue*

Mile 3 to 3.5 - Three fourths of the way done, I'm tired, I hate this, why do I do this, don't be a baby, I should have at least tried for five miles today, speed up a little, weenie!

Mile 3.5 to 3.8 - I'm never speaking to Skinny Bitch again! *Note: Huge fucking hill here!*

Mile 3.8 to 4.2 - Oh thank you Baby Jesus, I'm almost home, please don't let me die here in the street... *Glare over at Skinny Bitch's house as I limp and pant my way up to my porch.*

You so can't blame this on me!!! I haven't run in a week! You're the one who got bit by the bug and is now addicted. Ha! Told you so, this is all your own doing!

And aren't you proud of me for figuring out how to post???? =-) I've only been following this blog for a year! heh heh

I do two miles at varying speeds but my fastest mile is 16 minutes.

I know--that is so lame. I have only been running about a month. My goal is to do 3 miles in 45 minutes.

Even so?

I go through something similar to this thought process every time.

Only I am on a treadmill, so I start justifying reasons to slow down or stop.


you are my idol

that is all
