~ inspired by Shel Silverstein
I cannot do my run today.
I cannot swing it, there's just no way.
My nose is stuffed, my throat is sore.
I got NO sleep the night before.
It's raining cats and dogs out there.
I'll go tomorrow, I will, I swear.
My iPod doesn't have a charge.
The blisters on my feet are large.
I'm out of Gatorade and GU
There's so much other stuff to do.
My teammate already got hers done.
Without her a long run is just no fun.
What? What's that you say?
You say today's a short and easy day?
G'bye. I'm going out to play!!
In truth, I am sick and a bit run down. I have been trying to fit in my runs with both work and skiing in the afternoon with my family. It was too much. I wasn't able to run yesterday because I had nothing left. I need to continue to remind myself that I love to run and that it truly is fun and I when I don't feel that way, it's time to lose the watch and the training plan and just run because I want to.
