I have gone running with my niece twice now since she has been here and I have discovered something important... I absolutely have to give myself a goal.
When we went running the first time I just turned on my tracker and went.. and ended up giving up around 2 miles or so.. but when we went out the second time I put the timer on for 45 minutes.. and ran the entire 35 minutes that I was supposed to run.. The other 10 minutes were warm up and cool down time.. but we ended up going 4 miles!
I need that goal set saying I have made it half way.. telling me to keep going and push myself to finish .. otherwise I just give up..
So.. timed runs it is.. :)
