Fitness Friday: On Being Type A

As I've gotten older, I've swung from totally go with the flow to a seriously Type A personality. Maybe it was college? Or my job? Or being a parent? Who knows. All I know is that I am a crazy planner and need to know what is happening next. This seems to make running more difficult.

The second I start running I'm already planning out how far I'm going to run, how long I want it to take, etc. While there is nothing wrong with having goals, I really wish I could just set out....and go. Run until I'm done, go wherever I go, take as long as I want (or have time for) without thinking about it too much. I'll be 30 seconds into a run and already wondering if I'm going to make it. Make it where? I'm not due to be anywhere at any certain time!

Music seems to help keep my mind off of it, but otherwise I'm still trying to figure out how to chill out and stop thinking so much. I think it'll be good for me to learn how to let go of least a little.

Things I learned running this week:

  • When you run around your town, you will find hills that you didn't even know existed. And you will hate them.
  • If its 28 degrees outside, remember to wear Chapstick. Or better yet, just slather on some Aquaphor for good measure. 
  • Remember to charge your cell phone before you go or you'll spend the entire run praying it doesn't die.
  • Apparently, my Galaxy SIII came with really, really nice head phones and I can stop stealing Jeff's. He's happy about it.
