Take the Bad with the Good

I set out this morning a little sluggish.. My alarm went off and I was wanting to yell "just 5 more minutes, MOM" like I use to when I was a kid.. Oh dang it, I'm an adult now and I have to make my own lazy butt get out of bed (dang the luck)..  So, once I got out of bed and drank my N.O.-XPLODE pre-training igniter I finally started to wake up.. Once, I was dressed, stretched, and out the door my run didn't go as smoothly as I would have liked (I Hate When This Happens!!).. My first mile was a little rough, I couldn't get my breathing or pace right.. So, in mile 2 I slowed things down and things started to go a little more smoothly.. Then my dreaded 3 mile showed it's ugly face and  had to terrorize me for 11 minutes and 5 seconds ( let me tell you it felt like I was never going to hit my 3rd mile and I wanted to stop so many times).. Finally, mile 3 was behind me and I was feeling pretty good for half a mile.. Then, my funk came back and I let my self have the best of me :0/.. Oh while, you can't win them all and the bad run days make the good ones feel even better.. I'm just glad I push my self for those 3 1/2 miles ( deep down, I wish it could have been 4 good miles).. I did manage to squeeze in a little workout time in and it made me feel a little better after having my bad run..
