Beat But Not Beaten

I am Beat. But, I. AM. NOT. BEATEN!! Tonight's run was tough! It was super windy and chilly (note the crazy fly away hair). My legs felt like lead. I wanted to quit and go home. I didn't!

"It does not matter how slowly you go, so long as you do not stop." Confucius

I didn't stop. I didn't let "it" beat me. I feel awesome! Every week my runs are tough. Every week I make it through. I know next week will be just as hard... It is not getting easier. HOWEVER, my runs are getting longer time wise, and a eensy weensy bit longer distance wise every week! So every week it will be hard. That my friends is ok with me! That is progress!! When it gets easy, I'll throw a big ol bloggy party!! (I'm talking easy every time I lace up my shoes ;)

Filed under randomness....

Spring in Wisconsin = Hail! I was woken up twice by the hail hitting the roof and the windows last night. Most of the pieces were marble size, but as you can see from the picture above, some of them were much bigger! Crazy Wisconsin weather!!

Yummy!! Please accept my apologies if you are vegetarian. I am not. I am solidly a carnivore. And I love turkey!! I roasted this baby Sunday!! Mashed potatoes, gravy and frozen sweet corn rounded out the meal. Yup, old school. No greens involved in this meal! :)

  1. I can almost guarantee that all your runs will never feel easy! Or maybe thats just me. But the will get easier and they will become more enjoyable just wait!

    Really funny to see the turkey, I just pulled one out of the freezer to roast this weekend!

  2. Wow, that hail looks and sounds CRAZY!!! Great job finishing your tough run. How often do you run? Right now my runs feel tough, but after a few weeks of consistent training at the right paces, my runs do feel easy. I hope yours eventually feel easy!!!

    Nice turkey. :)

  3. Way to stick with it! Hopefully as the weather gets better, the runs will get easier (that's what I'm hoping for:))

  4. Awesome job on the run! Go girl! :0) The turkey looks and sounds delicious! :0)
