I just finished a run, and I’m physically and mentally tired.
Writing this is taking more effort since the adrenaline wore off. I’m still sore from my last workout but I went for it anyways. I had to return a library book so I made that my must leave the house reason.
There was a lot of puddle jumping and some snow bank hurdling, so I felt that made me work harder. I didn’t run as far as last time, but I feel more tired.
I don’t know if it was a combination of those things or the fact that I didn’t sleep well last night, but I started off with a lower energy level already. So I did have to urge my mind to keep going. It was less my muscles complaining than my lungs. The air was brisk, I don’t know how that effected everything.
I’ve started logging my runs on http://www.mapmyrun.com and I’m loving being able to see what I’ve done. It’s not much yet but it feels good to have started. I like that I’m not bothering with the numbers until I’m done. I’ve just been starting slow and listening to my body. My favorite thing about mapmyrun is that I can log the route that I ran on the map and it calculates the distance for me.
It feels good to sweat. Now I need food.
Thank you for reading!
