Hey, hey! Happy Tuesday!
Tuesdays usually consist of a new Trainer Tuesday workout, but I honestly just don’t feel like thinking up a workout at the moment. Maybe I’ll feel up to it later in the week and you’ll get a workout then… Or maybe not. We’ll have to see.
Instead I decided to ramble on today about how I’m getting a REAL itch to run. Like bad. I’m going to chalk this up there for a few reasons…
1) The weather has been GORGEOUS lately. All I want to do is be outside. Especially running outside.
2) It’s been almost two months since I’ve ran or did any sort of high intensity exercise. I never thought I’d see this day coming. It’s just been so long. I miss that endorphin rush and energy I get from running.
3) My friend that I was supposed to run the half marathon with is really getting into her training now. I’m so proud of her and all of her hard work. It also makes me wish so badly I was training with her.
4) I’ve been feeling some stress with work recently. Running is my favorite stress reliever.
I never in my life thought I’d go two weeks without any sort of high intensity exercise, let alone two months. Yes, I love exercise that much. Call me crazy. Regardless, the last two months have been so good for me. Hard, but good. Mentally, physically, emotionally, spiritually… it’s all been tough, but I know I’m going to come out on top and it’ll all be worth it in the end.
One of my best friends reminded me the other day that this is only a temporary thing. Even though I know that in the back of my head, it’s nice to be reminded of it as I seem to lose sight of that sometimes. Although I don’t plan to beat my body up like I used to, I do plan to run again someday. And boy, do I look forward to that “someday”…
I’m considering going on a short jog around the neighborhood today. I think an easy one or two miler might help me get my itch out. Or maybe it’ll make the itch worse? Who knows. Regardless, it will be SHORT and EASY.
Go on a good run for me, will you? Or don’t, if your body is saying “NO!”. That’s cool too and totally commendable.
Anyway, thanks for listening to my rambles, complaints, and thoughts. Please don’t feel sorry for me or anything like that. That is not why I am writing this post. It is simply to share what is on my mind and heart. You all are the best. Seriously. Thank you.
