I tried to run solo today since MB is out of commission and running with the pup didn't really work out. It was a beautiful day. A little windy, but really pretty warm for this time of year. I started out okay. My goal was to try and run 3 5 minute segments and then more if I was able. I ended up doing 4 minutes, walking, running 4 minutes, walking then running 2 minutes and walking the rest of the way home. Overall, I ran 10 minutes out of my 40 minute walk.
Not bad, but not the best.
I really feel like I'm falling behind without MB there to motivate me. Plus, it's kinda boring without a partner to run with.
There is no one to laugh at me when I start to hyperventilate; tell me how sexy I am as I spit like a cowboy; smack my butt when I actually run the whole segment without issues. I miss these things.
I miss running with MB.
I'm not going to give up though. I can't wait 3 weeks while MB gets better. I need to maintain my motivation somehow.
This means I'll be hitting the pavement on my own again. Hopefully I can be my own motivator. It might be difficult to smack my own butt though.

Thought for the day:
I really need to find my feet, so to speak, with running solo.
