I got home from work tonight and took Murphy for a twenty minute walk. During the walk, I tried to make up excuses of why I shouldn’t go for a run tonight. I was hungry, I could do it tomorrow, I could go to the gym and do it. I realized that I was being stupid. It was a gorgeous evening and there was absolutely no reason why I shouldn’t do my run. I knew that once I strapped on my ipod and got going, I would be glad I did.
And it worked. After the first mile hill, which always sucks, I found my stride and had a nice 4.5 mile run. The weather was perfect. It was probably in the 60s which feels quite cool compared to the 90+ temps we’ve had all summer. Of course, I was glad I went. That always happens; I don’t want to run because I’m tired or hungry but if I just make myself go, I feel good after. If I skip it and satisfy the other thing that I want (lying on the couch, snacks, a glass of wine etc), I end up mad at myself. The moral of the story is that if I have no real reason not to run except that I don’t feel like it, I should go anyway, it will be worth it.
Woo, woo, season premiere of The Hills tonight. Honestly, I don’t know if I’ll like it without Lauren. I also don’t know if I’ll be able to stay up until 10.
