All right. That was a good day. So today I’ve been working pretty hard. I’ve been kind of tired all day, not from just being tired, but from working had a lot of videos I needed to do so going onto the treadmill and going into my afternoon workout, I wanted to approach it different than normal. I wanted to just cause in the videos I’ve, I’ve recorded hours a day, more than normal, and it’s been difficult. It really has. It’s it’s pushing myself in ways that I haven’t ever done. I’ve never made this many videos in a day when it comes to amount of hours being recorded. So it’s, it’s a large check. So I wanted to downplay that challenge because I still have a lot to do, right. If I can finish the rest, then today will be a groundbreaking day for me, because then it allows my mind to know that I can achieve it.
Right. And tell you, do something you’ll never know if you can do it or not. With that mentality today on having to work extra hard to make videos, because what yesterday I was lazy and I didn’t make any. Now I did a lot of other things yesterday, but I didn’t make any money for this particular project. So I was behind. So today I walked into this afternoon workout with the intention of running longer than I ever had. I did that because if I just break one challenge today, then I’ll feel good. But if I break two challenges, I’ll feel better. And I know that capable of doing much more than what I believe right now. So if you’ve noticed, we started on the treadmill at 10 minutes, then we moved our way up and we were at 30 minutes. Well today just cause I wanted to challenge myself and do something that I’d never done before. So I wanted to prove that anything is possible. I set out with the mission to run an hour an hour, and I’ve never done this before in my life, higher life, maybe plan sports when I was younger, just running around and I was an hour, but it’s running straight on a treadmill for an hour. Today was the first day.
Now going into this mindset, I had to have a little bit different mindset than normal. So was I trying to outdo myself? No, but I just wanted to have a good day pain one hour to prove to myself that I am capable of doing something if I put my mind to it. So the normal times throughout the day, I always tell you about, about what 20 minutes in about 15 minutes in is when I start getting my second wind and it’s not miserable anymore. And then here about 30 minutes, it gets about it’s miserable again. And then after about 31 to 32 minutes, if I’m still on the treadmill, then I get my third wind, I guess. And I keep going well today at 20 minutes, I was like, Oh man, I have a lot to go. I got 40 more minutes. Well then I changed my thinking and I was like, you know what, you’re a third of the way done because when I’m running 30 minutes, once I hit that 15 minute Mark, I’m like, all right, I’m running downhill.
So today, once I stopped looking at what I had in front of me as up the Hill, I started looking behind me and looking at what I’ve already accomplished. So then when I was able to split it up into thirds, I was like, okay, well at 40 minutes, then I’m more than halfway. Then at one 40 minutes hit, I was like, man, I can’t, I got 10 minutes, 10 minutes is nothing. So then when 50 minutes hit, I was like, you know what? I was getting close to running five miles. I was, it was more important to me to now get to the five miles before the hour.
So I no longer was concerned about how tired I was. I was no longer concerned about how long I’d been on the treadmill. My only desire was to get five miles before an hour. So in order to ensure that I would accomplish that mission, I had to raise the speed. So I raised the speed to 5.5. Now I didn’t want to overdo it because this is unchartered territory. But I knew that if I only raised it a half a mile per hour, my body wouldn’t notice such a grand difference does just a small smidget, but will make a world of difference in the 10 minutes that I did it. Right. Okay. It’s almost a half a mile difference. So when it got to an hour, did I make it just, I did total time today because you know, I went backwards for my one little song kind of cool down was 5.3 miles. So was I able to run further on a day that I’m tired now? It’s almost six o’clock. So I’ve been working all day long. Cause you know, I still wrote the bike. I woke up a little late. I was on the bike at four, but I was still on the pipe. No, I think it was three.
I was on that bike. So, so today has been an extremely long day. So the end of the day, it’s not over yet because I still have to do cause I’ve neglected a couple of other things today to work on my project. So I got to do my daily work now. So I’m not done with the day, but what this did was it motivated me to prove to my mind that anything is possible if you just do it. And with that, I’m gonna take a shower.
