Running Perspective

Today’s scheduled run was for 2 miles, and for the first time in a very, very long time I actually got a workout in on a Tuesday. Typically Tuesday’s are my busiest days, but thanks to daylight saving’s I now have extra light after I get home from work.

I packed my running gear and changed and work to make sure I didn’t back out. It’s always harder for me to run in the afternoons than in the mornings.

It was quite gloomy by the time I got to the park, but thankfully it didn’t rain on my run. I got in my two miles and felt pretty good after. It definitely improved my mood!!! I did a loop around the park that runs along the river and the wind was really picking up today. I’m glad I didn’t back out today.

Two miles isn’t much compared to the regular 5 or 6 I used to run…but it’s a good improvement over three months ago when I was confined to the couch. I’ve got to keep that in perspective.

Speaking of perspective, I was reading a newsletter published by a local running group and noticed that they accepted submissions from anyone who wanted to offer one. I’m kind of considering it because I do enjoy writing, AND running…I may email them and see what they think. I’d probably write a piece on my illness and recovery and how thankful I am that I can run…something motivational I guess.

Well, that’s it for now. I’ve got to get some rest because tomorrow’s run will be early in the morning in the gym due to the rain showers moving in to the area.
