I felt far better today in terms of my energy. I did not have as good of a run as last week and my shin gave me some trouble during the first half mile. I pressed on, slowed down my pace and after awhile it improved. I still was pleased with my workout overall. I sometimes have to remember that yes, I am training so that I can do fun races and so on, but first and foremost I am training to improve my overall fitness and to loose weight. I should never define a workout based only on time but instead focus on how each workout will bring me closer to my goals. Every time I workout, I am changing my life. I am building a base that will keep me fit and healthy for years to come!
