Two Miles...Again

I ran two miles for the first time (again) in I don't know how long...probably a month. I took my favorite route- Marguerita all the way- and cruised right on to the ocean. I ran with Junior and it was really nice. I was going slowly for sure, but the point is that I ran two miles without stopping. As usual, it just makes me think that adding 24 miles on top of that is going to be basically impossible.

When I start going down that route, I just try and talk myself out of it. By the time I'm supposed to run 26.2 miles, I will have had much more training under my belt and if all continues the way that it has, I'll have significantly less of me to carry around. I don't mean that in a mean, put myself down kind of way, I just honestly mean, that I sure as hell hope I have lost enough weight for it to make a difference come the end of October. I don't need to make this anymore difficult for myself.

After the run, Junior and I were treated to a great ocean view and it reminded of just how much I love Santa Monica. (Note: I didn't take this picture, but wanted you to get a little visual stimulation as well!)

It feels great to have increased the workouts this week. I ran on Monday and then went for a walk last night and then ran again today. I'm hoping to keep up a nice workout routine this week and I'm looking forward to see how much of a difference that makes on the scale on Sunday. Regardless of what it tell me, I know I'm moving in the right direction.

As an aside, only five more days until my most favorite day of the entire year!
