Still Running


The map of my route looks quite impressive, even though I have run a lot further in the past. I missed tai-chi last night. It’s pre-paid so I almost never skip class but I didn’t feel good. This morning I woke a little after 5:00 and was tempted to put off running for another day but I resisted and also resisted the temptation to do the shorter run. The 2.76 miles felt more difficult than on my previous run, six days ago, but I completed the distance in a slightly shorter time, improving my mile-pace by 11 seconds.

Running opposes the lethargy and depression that I feel. A good run resets my week and motivation to some extent but I need to keep this going.
