I went for my first run in 29 days tonight and it was surprisingly very nice. You may or may not know that I am very hot and cold when it comes to running. Sometimes I love it and sometimes I absolutely loathe it. I am very fickle. Every time I see someone else running outside I feel guilty and jealous at the same time. The hardest part of running is actually getting out the door. Getting into my running clothes and starting off from my house. I don’t know why it’s so hard sometimes, but it is. I kind of hate the feeling when I am actually running too. That tired, out of breath and out of shape feeling. If I start running more regularly, I am sure that will change, but as of now, I am totally out of shape.
Anyway, I really enjoyed my evening run tonight. I left just before dark and by the time I was done the sun had completely gone down. I hate that the sun sets so early now and I know that the days will just continue to get shorter. Last time I went for a run, summer was still in full swing. It was hot and a little humid and the flowers were in their beautiful blooming states. As I was running tonight there were leaves on the ground everywhere and the trees were magnificent colours of autumn. I will have to take advantage of the beautiful fall running weather while I can. I hate running in the winter with it’s snow & ice and I know it will also be upon us before we know it.
I have been feeling really “blah” lately. I am supposed to be following weight watchers and working out and it’s only really happening 40% of the time. I was reading Cathrine’s blog and she put it perfectly in a recent blog post about feeling like a flat tire. That is exactly when I feel like. It’s amazing putting it into words like that. Perfect. I need to put some air into my tire and regain my energy and momentum. I hope this run I went on today is just the little spark I need to get going again.
