I was scheduled to run 18k in preparation for my half marathon which is only TWO WEEKS away.
I ran 10k.
3 days late.
It was fine, except for the fact that my knees felt like they were two pieces of grinding metal - heat, sparks and all. That's probably not surprising since I haven't really been running all that much the last few weeks.
My new theory is that I will run for as long and as often as I feel like it. So WHAT if I have a half marathon in 2 weeks? So WHAT if I don't have the perfect body? If I'm not having fun with it, then I shouldn't be doing it. I already do a whole bunch of stuff EVERY DAY that I don't have fun doing. I don't want running to become one of those things.
Despite the knee pain the run was fantastic and seems like this week is a "renaissance" (that's what I'm teaching these days) of my motivation into exercise. All I have to do is stop watching so much TV so I can get everything else done that I've got on my to-do list.
By the way, watching the Big C - it's hilarious.
