After a break at work, I often observe the “after the break hump,” a metaphorical speed bump I have to somehow get over in order to get back to work. Today, I said to my co-worker, “After the break hump is nothing compared to after four days off hump.” I know, I can be happy I had four days off or miserable because I had to go back to work. Or I suppose I could multi-task.
Be that as it may, I came home from work and went running. As you can imagine, the “I haven’t been running in I can’t remember how long hump” is quite the obstacle as well. However, I faced it and overcame it. One help is that I have really missed running. I have been WANTING to run but haven’t had time. As you may have heard, I’ve been in a play. And am writing and performing in murder mysteries. The play still has a weekend to go, and I’m still working on two of three mysteries. Nevertheless, I ran.
And now I’m too tired to write about it.
It was a short run, only 22 minutes. I made up my mind to do 20, as a start, since I have not been running in a while. Twenty minutes with an eight to ten minute cool-down walk around the block sounded good to me. The extra two minutes just sort of happened.
Then again, for Tired Tuesday after a four day break, I don’t think this is such a contemptible post. Let’s see what happens tomorrow, when I may have a Wuss-out Wednesday.
