Steven Dybvad – Personal Journal – May 18, 2014

by Steven Dybvad

Continuing to break personal records. Yesterday I ran thirty laps around the track, which equals to 7.5 miles. This is the longest distance I think I have ever run before. I enjoy pushing myself to do better; it’s an accomplishment that never gets old. When I realize that my capacity for strength and endurance exceeds what was once set in my mind, it gives me the motivation to keep pushing myself. Running is one of the most therapeutic tools in my box. Running 7.5 miles took me an hour and fifteen minutes. That’s plenty of time to do nothing but think, think about my life, goals, future, family, etc. Not to mention how great I feel the rest of the day, calm, relaxed, rested, etc. My body is used to running an average of five, or six miles a day, but today I feel very sore. It’s a good soreness, a soreness I welcome, because it’s a reminder of my achievement and proof of how hard I worked to get healthier physically and mentally as well.
