I had thought to make a Running Commentary post in lieu of my usual Lame Post Friday post. I tried all day to psych myself up for a run. As I worked, I pictured myself jogging down the sidewalk. Of course when you run in your headp it always feels good, not thunky or breathless. Then as it got closer to quitting time, lounging with a nice beverage on the deck seemed a better way to go.
Steven was even relaxing on the deck when I got home. How churlish it would be of me not to join him! Well, I was churlish enough to get myself into running gear and get going. A short run, I told myself, secretly hoping to end up doing a medium or even a long run once I got going.
It a actually did not feel too bad. I did not run Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday, although I did mow the lawn on Tuesday (I seem to remember mentioning that in a blog post). I went for a short run yesterday (which I also mentioned in my blog post). Running the second day usually does feel better, which was one reason I was able to talk myself into it.
It was a short run, although slightly longer than yesterday’s. I fully intend to run tomorrow, which I expect will feel good, since I will run in the morning, not in the afternoon heat after working for eight hours.
I guess I didn’t say too much about the run itself, other than that I did it. I am going to say that that’s OK for a Lame Post Friday. I hope to see you all on Saturday. Scattered? Slacker? Otherwise? A little uncertainty adds interest to my blog.
