The kids left for school this morning at 0800 am and I jumped in the car at 0810 am to head for the running track!
What a sight for sore eyes! Can you believe that I was the only person on the track? What a feeling. The first lap was laboured, but I managed to focus my thoughts on regulating my breathing and literally heard my legs plodding the track like an elephant as I pushed through the pain spurred on by a Peven Everett music track on my iPod.
I kept repeating the lyrics in my head – you got me in your eye, got me in your eye, got me in your eye – do it again, do it again, do it again – come on girl, come on girl, come on girl! That (including a lot of sweat and rain) got me around the 4 laps and I felt thoroughly exhilarated afterwards – job well done!
