As my last post pointed out- this was my first run after nothing for 1.5 weeks. It was a treadmill run because of the humidity and my recovering chest cold. However, I ran 4 miles and sweat A LOT and one of the gym owners came up to me as I was cooling down to tell me how great I'm doing with my running. He said he can see improvement in my form and how I run as well as just overall fitness.
He was really surprised (as in, happy for me- couldn't believe it was that much) that I'd lost nearly 60 lbs since November. I can barely believe it myself.
Comments and recognition like that make it a lot easier to plan your NEXT run rather than think about how much you don't want to do it! :)
