Here we are on Tired Tuesday, and I feel as if I just can’t write a thing. Well, obviously, I just wrote that stupid sentence, as well as this one. That doesn’t prove anything, because I can just backspace them out and once again be staring at a blank screen. Crap.
It was almost as hot and humid at my work today as it was yesterday, so I left feeling pretty much as melted (but yet no smaller, it’s no fair). However, I managed to go running. I did not ambitiously get right out as soon as I got home. First I sat on the couch, drank a glass of chocolate milk, and looked at the computer. I had made up my mind to give it a miss and try again tomorrow. Then I said, oh, what the hell.
As I ran, I thought I would make a Running Commentary post. I know I just did one on Sunday, but I thought I could get away with it. Anyways, I like to narrate in my head as I go. I never include all the stuff I come up with, which is probably just as well, because it would make some pretty long posts. Today I went pretty slowly. I figured I could make it a short run: 20 minutes. I could make it for 20 minutes. Could I make it for 20 minutes? Sometimes 20 minutes is a long time and not just when you’re at work. Why couldn’t I get one of those second winds you hear about?
Eventually I realized I was going to make it for 20 minutes, or a little more. I turned the corner and was headed towards my street. Suddenly I felt pretty okay and thought I could run further. I could pass my street, and the next, then run up Main Street and over German back home. Woohoo! This is what a second wind feels like! I felt less second and more windy when I actually got to Main Street, if you know what I mean. The beauty part was, I still had to run back home, so my run was going to be a decent amount of time. Also, I like running by Herkimer’s Historic Four Corners.
My run ended up being 30 minutes. I felt pretty happy about that, and my cool-down walk felt pretty darn good. And now I have managed to wrote a blog post. Not a great blog post, but I think it’ll do for Tired Tuesday.
