Tough Run

Yesterday’s run was tough but 2 friends got me through it. I knew I needed to do a long hilly run as I am training for a hilly half marathon in a couple weeks. I knew I was tired from the start but sometimes I will feel better during the run. The weather was cold for the first 2 miles but the sun was shining. First 7.5 miles of hills I was doing well. Mile 8, I really started feeling very tired. Mike and Sharon stayed with me to push me through it to the end. Runners have a way to silently just support each other. Camaraderie is strong part in many sports but runners and triathletes have a way to do it silently.

Everyone has a good and bad day for their workouts. Working out with a friend or partner will get you through those tough days feeling like roses when you finished. Throwing in the towel when the workout is starting not well or before you start, then think of those good workouts you had the previous times. Absorb the karma from others and not giving up will put you on top of your game during those days or competitions.
