OUC Half Training – W7D46 – Distance 5 Miles

No matter how I feel in the morning, when I’m done, I am always glad I ran.  Running makes me feel energized and awake as soon as I leave the doorstep.  As I waited there for the cross walk symbol, freezing, right down the steps, I think, “there’s no turning back now.”  As soon as the white crossing guy lights up I am off into the cool morning air.  Immediately, I feel alive and ready for anything.  There is no more dreading getting out of bed or trying to rationalize rescheduling my run.  In the end I get up and head out anyway, or at least whenever I have a strict training plan that I am following.  I want to see if the plan works, so I am doing everything that it says.
