Not looking forward to it today…

I think every runner goes through those days when you didn’t get enough sleep the night before, your muscles are still sore from the last run, the weather will be hot and muggy, and you just don’t feel up for a run. That’s how I’m feeling right now.

I know I will get home, I’ll change out of my work clothes and into my running clothes, and I’ll get it done. Why? Because the thought of not running is worse to me than any discomfort while running. It’s become something that I put a priority on in my life. I will give up my comfort to run.

I will do a light run today, though. On my last run on Monday, I planned on doing a light run and while the pace was slow, I ended up going over 4.3 miles. This time, I will aim for right at 3 at an easy pace. I still have more muscle pain than I think I should be having due to pushing too hard last week. I’ll still go for 80+ push ups since my arms have been taken care of pretty well with the slow increase in numbers over the past few months.

Do you ever have those days when you just don’t feel like running but push through it anyway?
