I'm Glad I Ran

I have not run since Saturday, and it has been killing me. My schedule has been so tight with work and all that I now have to squeeze in runs whenever I can.

I woke early this morning to get a run in before work, but I laid in bed thinking about how comfortable I was. I actually tried to talk myself into not running and just sleeping in.

Reality hit me and I realized that if I did not get up and go running I would be mad at myself and regret it the rest of the day. So I got up and got moving.

The morning air was cold and I could not stand still for fear of stopping. I immediately got into my warm up and got moving. Mentally I was telling myself I would only do a mile even though I was planning on doing a mile and a half. Before I even got to the half mile mark I knew I would do the entire run as planned.

The quality of the run was not the best that I ever had, but it still felt good.

I'm glad that I ran.

On a side not... I am going to try to get Spirit of the Marathon on DVD tonight. Check back for a review.

Oh don't you just abhor those days when you don't feel like getting out of bed and you listen and you regret it all day?

I'm proud of you for fighting the urge and getting up!
