I have stayed in the last several weekends. It started out that I was sick, and needed to rest, so I gave up working out for a week, which is hard to make myself do.
During this time, I discovered that Netflix (my most favorite thing on earth besides wine, and real tivo, not DVR) has the first 8 seasons of Grey's Anatomy.
So, naturally I watched the first three seasons in 3 days.
It was fun catching up with the gang, but this is highly anti-social, not to mention....lazy!! This should be reserved strictly for snowstorms, and freezing temperatures!!
I took my hibernation to two weeks. While it was hard to make myself not work out for a week, it was pretty easy to just not work out another week...an object at rest stays at rest.
Now I am facing a 7.5 mile relay leg next weekend, followed by a half marathon the following week.
So finally, today I laced up my shoes, and hit the trail for a test run of 8 miles. I hadn't been outdoor running for months due to the heat, and I forgot how much I love it! But fall has arrived!! The crisp air, the beautiful leaves turning color, waving to fellow runners.
But mostly, I love the forced time to be alone with my thoughts. That is my favorite therapy. I do my best thinking when I run outside. (indoor runs are distracted by TV watching)
I'm glad I went! Sometimes you just have to force yourself to do what you don't feel like doing to remember how much you love it!
I'm back on the wagon this week, and I am hoping that I can pull these last two races out of my ass.
It's the end of the season for me. (I think) What I know for sure is...I cannot wait to get those last two medals!! They are like crack to a crackhead for me!
