Sometimes you take a run…

Last week Up North I ran down to the water with PalKid’s friend. As we took those long, high strides that get you across the sand she said, “I feel like a superhero!” So did I. That dream you sometimes have (or at least I do) when I run effortlessly, floating—I felt that. And I was motivated to continue working on my intervals, increase my endurance.

But sometimes it doesn’t work. Yesterday’s run felt fine, although I had to do a bit more walking than I like, but today…

Rather than floating effortlessly, I was running through a thick fog, with my hands and feet in irons. I barely made it a mile-and-a-half, much of it walking.

It probably didn’t help that I had gone to see a bad movie and gorged on popcorn and coke. And then stopped for a pint with a friend. I suppose that could have had something to do with it.

Well, next time will be the charm, and if it’s not, then the time after that.
