notmypresident: (Go Homer Go)
As if to underscore how my brain is my worst enemy, I got on the treadmill this afternoon thinking that I would have to take things easy after I pushed myself hard yesterday. I made the mistake, however, of cueing the same music from yesterday's speed session. And instead of stopping myself to pull up slower music, I decided to give it a go even though my brain was telling me I wouldn't survive.

Not only did I survive, I went an extra five minutes on top of my regular session. I'm still so very, very far behind my past achievements, but this was a nice little victory. And it proves (once again) that my Inner Voices aren't always to be followed. Exercise improvements come only when the limits are pushed, and I'm grateful that I still have a few weeks left before NYC for further pushing.
