This weekend I sort-of planned on a short run but worried that I wouldn’t work up the motivation to go out and run it. This afternoon I felt a bit tired and I really didn’t want to go out and run but I wondered what would be ahead of me if I did? Would it be easy? Would it be really hard? How would my legs feel? …And most importantly what sort of things would I see by the side of the road?
Well, I did work up the motivation to get out there. At first the run wasn’t much fun. After a while longer it still wasn’t much fun. After a little more than 2 miles I considered taking a short-cut to back track and go home. I figured that I’d be disappointed in myself if I took it so I ran by the shortcut and continued on my planned 4.4 mile run.
Since I ran our 2 mile loop course there wasn’t anything to see as it is in a very residential area. No dead animals. In fact it appeared as though a street sweeper went through the area. The only notable thing that happened on the run tonight was that I saw another runner. Of course I’ve seen other runners when I’ve been out but this is the first time they were going in the same direction as me. I passed him and I said hello. He said something like “show off.” 🙂 It was pretty funny but it doesn’t seem funny when you write it down.
My time tonight was 38:02 for about 4.4 miles.
