So. As I was sitting at my table this afternoon, happily watching anime, I felt suddenly possessed to go for a run.
Yes, well, that's what I thought too, so I told myself, "Perhaps later... When it's a bit cooler..." and settled back into my anime.
Yup... My little demon was back, prodding, whining & wheedling to go outside & run around Lake Padden... Something I used to be able to do. Without stopping. Yep.
So, due to this little entity in running shoes, brandishing her pitchfork, relentlessly begging to go outside, I did the only thing I could...
I dug out my running clothes, laced up my beloved (yet neglected...) running shoes & went for a run. Which turned into a brisk walk... ^-^
As I said before, I used to be able to run the 2.6 miles with no problem... as I sit now, I'm having to work my way back up from the bottom of the hill again, so to speak. I think I ran about a quarter of a mile before I stopped... lolz... I did make it all the way up that damn hill though, so I'm not going to complain too terribly much... ^-^
Sigh. It's hard for me to not dwell on the "what ifs" sometimes... It frustrates me to know that if I hadn't given up last time, I'd be in that much better shape & that much healthier now instead in worse shape & decidedly unhealthier than before.
I'm not going to let this get me down. ^-^ I'm going to keep on trucking along, because who knows? This time I may actually stick with it & meet my goals for healthiness. I'm hoping so... I'm putting all my positive energy into this time around. ^-^
And even though I'm sore & achy, I feel really good that I got my chubby buns out there & went for it. Go me! =D
Alrighty... Now I'm off to visit some tea parties before I get ready to go to work. Hope y'all are having a good night! ^-^
