I went running today in hopes of making a Running Commentary post. Also in hopes of burning a few calories and getting closer to my weight loss goals. Well, I blew the progress toward the weight loss goals by eating a few very delicious treats. I have no regrets. Let’s see how I do on the blog post.
I did not get right to the run, as I prefer to do. In fact, I thought I had talked myself put of it. Instead, I found myself putting on running clothes and gathering a load of laundry. My favorite multi-task is to out a load in the washer and run while it washes. Actually, it is one of my only multi-tasks. Most of the time I can barely task, but let us not discuss my shortcomings.
Soon I was plodding down the sidewalk, feeling as if I had not run for days. It has only been two, but I have not been running nearly enough. I made up my mind to continue. For one reason, I couldn’t take my shower till the washer was done. This is why it is my favorite multi-task.
It was a beautiful warm, sunny day. Perfect fall weather. I enjoyed looking at the changing leaves and at people’s Halloween decorations. I also enjoyed looking at my shadow when the sun was behind me. How slender I looked! What legs! Of course, the angle of the sun elongated me into a far more flattering silhouette than I deserve. Never mind that; it kept me running.
It was not all that good of a run. For the most part I was tired and wanted to stop. However, I persevered for 24 minutes plus a 10 minute cool down walk. I consider that respectable for a mid-week run. Similarly, this post is now 300 words. I say, respectable for a Tired Tuesday.
