Today, I felt energized and excited about running because it was also a pool day for me. Upon stepping on the gym floor I saw a friend on the treadmill and hopped on the free one next to her. I decided to take a slow and easy pace while contemplating if I would squeeze in some lower body strength training. Before I realized it I was about a half mile into the run and in a little over 11 minutes I was done. 1.00 mile.
