When I left the house this morning, I wasn't sure I could do it. I haven't run three mile for over a month and I was nervous. I did make the big mistake of not eating before I left. I was going at a decent speed but halfway through I could feel my energy slipping. I will say one really wonderful thing I've learned from running is how to listen to my body. I knew I couldn't keep pushing at the pace I was going. If I did, I would pass out. My body told me to walk and save a bit of energy to finish. I walked for about four minutes before I felt recovered. After that, I picked up the pace I was able to run the rest of my splits. I didn't pass out, I didn't even feel shaky. I just listened to what my body told me and I was able to keep a decent pace and finish. I hope that I can do that during all my races. I hope that I can keep being in tune with how much I can push myself. I love that when it comes to keeping myself from injury, I can listen to what my body has to say. Now if I could only figure out what it's saying when it comes to nutrition....
