Running in circles
Around and around
(I said) I’m running in circles
And I can’t get you out of my mind
Is that how i look when running? Skinny legs and all, hmmm NOPE! But, i have to admit, my most prized possession, my legs are looking pretty damn good latey!
Yesterday, when i got up to the boards i was dismayed to discover a sheet of ice covering the entire boardwalk. I stood there for a moment looking both ways, wondering what i should do. Then it occured to me that i am quite accident prone or in other words…i am a klutz!
So, i quickly left the boards and decided on running around the park. Now, i normally do not enjoy running in circles, even big circles but i really had no choice. I decided on my usual 52 min which i think ends up to be about 4 miles.
The run was tedious and felt so much longer than 52 minutes or 4 miles to be exact. If i did not have my ipod with me, i would never have made it. You know the saying the mind is willing but the body is not? Is that a real saying? Or did i just make it up? Well, that is exactly how i felt!
But, and here’s the whole point….i did it. I completed the run because that is what i set out to do in the first place. There was no room in my mind for quitting. None at all. And so, whether or not i enjoyed the run is irrelevant isn’t it? I did it. I ran what i set out to run yesterday! So, after 52 minutes or 4 miles i felt damn good about myself! I patted myself on the back and walked back home with a smile!
Today, YES…today is my day off! I’m not sure if i am happy about that or just accepting that i do need to listen to my body, my legs and rest when needed. Tomorrow, is another day isn’t it?
