2 More Miles...

I decided to skip the sprints today and just do the longer run.  Though the lazy side of me likes the fact that the sprints are over more quickly, I actually feel better afterward when I go slower for longer.  And really, what better motivation is that?

I also have been sick of listening to the same music during the run, so this time I tried listening to a podcast.  I thought it might be harder but different... as it turns out, it made the run much more interesting.  I get bored really easily, so this gave my mind something else to focus on rather than asking my body, "Are we there yet?"

My podcast of choice?  Wait, Wait, Don't Tell Me, the NPR news quiz.  It's so funny, and it makes my mind work so that my body can just run.  I think I'll try it again on Sunday.

For you Etsy shop owners out there, don't forget to check in tomorrow to submit for this week's treasury!
