It’s been a while…

It’s been far too long since I ran, but I made it out today!  In the past I’ve had trouble keeping with running because I always tend to expect immediate results – meaning I expect to be able to run a 12 minute mile this week and an 11 minute mile next week.  Sometimes that works, but over the long term it has consistently made me fail.  Today, instead of focusing on the result, I tried to focus on the activity itself, and ended up having a great time.

I made it nearly 3.5 miles and felt like I could keep going – not bad for someone who hadn’t gone for a run in months.  I didn’t actually run the whole time.  I started by walking about 3 minutes, then ran for about 1 minute.  I continued alternating like that for about 15 minutes while I listened to a Themis Bar Review lecture (yeah, that July Bar Exam is already weighing on my mind and starting to invade my life!). I switched to Pandora radio, and then I ran during one song, walked during the next, and continued alternating in that manner for the remainder of the run.

On the playlist today… this guy:
