Notes to Self
  • Happy music drives me better than angry music
  • Taking too many breaks, about one every 4 minutes
  • Trying to be more mentally positive throughout the workout
  • It feels physically awful while I'm doing it, but my run looks great on paper when I'm done!
    • My Current Average Speed: 5.5-6 mph, need to build up to 6.5-7 mph by June
Songs on the Radio
Black Eyed Peas, Let's Get It Started (last .5 mile)
Jock Jams, I Like To Move It (intervals)
Paul Simon, Cecilia (just love this!)
