A Mile a Day - Day 16

Day 16

Between all the dog walkers who wanted to take up the entire street, to the people who didn't want to move out of the way when I was running on the sidewalk, today was by far the worst I've ever felt during the past 16 runs. I woke up and right away my body was telling me not to run, my back was sore and I really just didn't feel well. But I reminded myself of what I said yesterday, if the you can convince the mind to do something, the body won't be too far behind. So I started my run and right away ran into people who didn't have the decency to clear a little lane for me in the road and that got the run started off very poorly mentally. My music, was the complete opposite of yesterday, I could not find a good song to listen to while I ran, I don't think I listened to an entire song the whole run, which was annoying in itself. My body was aching, my mind wasn't focused, I went out too hard and couldn't finish how I wanted to. But all in all, the run is over and tomorrow is a new day. I have a feeling Day 17 is going to be much better.

What did I listen to? What didn't I listen to this morning, started with Country Pandora then skipped around a lot.

Verse of the Day: Matthew 16:24-27, "Then Jesus said to His disciples, 'If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will find it. What will it benefit a man if he gains the whole world yet loses his life? Or what will a man give in exchange for his life? For the Son of Man is going to come with His angels in the glory of His Father, and then He will reward each according to what he has done.'"

While day 16 may not have been a good one, It's over with and that now 16 miles completed in the past 16 days. I'm proud of myself, I'm over halfway to my goal of running everyday for a month. What will I do after a month? I guess you'll have to keep coming back to find out. Let's do it again tomorrow!
