I'm glad I put off yesterday's run until today. Hubs didn't have to be at work super early so I was able to get up a somewhat reasonable hour (since when is anything before six AM reasonable??) and get my four miles in. And it was warm out! By warm, I mean in the fifties. Of course I didn't check the weather before I left so I walked out the door with more layers on than I needed. I wasted some precious time adjusting what I was wearing as best as I could. I ditched my hat and gloves, unzipped my jacket halfway and headed out.
It was windy so the jacket helped. I had an excellent run with some awesome splits.
|Yep, had to take a picture of my computer screen. Gotta love it!|
Yes, I don't like getting up early. Yes, sometimes it takes me ten minutes to convince myself to get out of bed and run. And yes, during that first half mile I am usually cataloging my aches and pains and mentally berating myself for even attempting to run.
But, when all is said and done, when the run is over and I can look back at my splits or the distance I covered I feel damn good.
And that is why I run.*
*Plus, I can eat a milkshake today instead of lunch (dental appointment) and not feel guilty about it. That's also why I run.
