Best Thing I Never Had

by Beyonce' was my song of choice while running yesterday!  I can't related to the song at all, but I just like the music and emotion in it, haha.

I had done a lot of cross training this past week, so I knew I'd have to run for real on Saturday.  It was pretty muggy out in the morning, so I resorted to the treadmill  (ps - I am SOOO incredibly ready for fall so I can run outside).  I was plugging along and after about 2 miles, I was getting pretty tired.  I had taken 2 days off, so my legs weren't quite feeling the whole running thing.  So I shortened my running intervals, and lengthened my walking intervals. And I decided I was just going to run 3 miles instead of my originally planned 4 miles.  I walked for a few minutes and as I started running again, I got a second wind (thank goodness!).  I figured out I only had 3 more intervals to do with the distance I had left, so I convinced myself to go for it.  And I'm glad I did!

While I was running, I was about halfway through and I guess my arms were getting excited about running and my hand accidentally hit the Emergency Stop button which stops the treadmill and ends your workout (which includes clearing your time and distance that you had done).  Thankfully I looked at my distance right before I hit it and remembered what my time/distance was so I knew how much more I had to go.  But it was frustrating because I had to stop and reset my settings on the treadmill. Oh, and then I hit the button AGAIN when I had like a quarter of a mile left!  Grrrrr.  Stupid red button gets in my way!

School starts back this week, so I'm going to have to get in the habit of pushing myself to the gym because I'm going to be super exhausted come Thursday!
