Overcoming a Psychological Hurdle

Friday workout: Doing tile until midnight. 'Nuff said.

Today: 6 miles in 66 minutes
Today's run was, dare I say, pretty easy. Granted, I'm no speed demon, but I was able to jog the whole time and felt like I was in the groove. My knees were sore around mile 5 but overall things went well.

The six mile mark was somewhat of a psychological hurdle for me to leap. Three years ago I was shooting for the marathon. I thought I was ready to do six miles, but in the middle of the route my knees decided I was done with running.

I felt a strong sense of accomplishment after my run today. I'm looking forward to slowing building up my mileage.
