I just wanted to post a really quick entry saying that I ran this morning. I got my ass out of bed at 5:30 a.m...but then I lied back down. But I realized I wasn't tired anymore, and that if I didn't run, it would be another two days until I did again and it would be SO much worse. So the thought of that, plus Ragnar, plus Thanksgiving and the guilt I knew I'd feel that might drive me to eat even worse made me PUSH myself out of bed to get dressed and go to the gym.

And I was dying the first two miles - with no food in me, paired with my complete disdain for being awake before the sun is out, my mind was telling me I wouldn't be able to finish the full 5K distance. So I made a deal with myself around mile 1.25 that I'd push to 2 and then finish the workout with 15 minutes of core training.

But at around mile 1.9, something changed, and I realized I could do the entire distance. So I did, in 35:43. Not good enough to beat my PR (34:09), but hopefully by the Reindeer Run on Dec. 10, I'll be able to.

I haven't been able to do this in a very long time, and I'm really proud of myself, despite the impending gain at my meeting today. I can do this.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
