Wednesday’s run was passed with flying colors! I felt strong and light on my feet. The breathing came easily with nothing of note laboring-wise! It was quick and I was putting the key in the keyhole to unlock when it felt like a few minutes earlier I was putting the key in the keyhole to lock!
I had to salvage out of today’s run what I could! I needed it to be a positive experience! After seven minutes of running, I felt like I was bonking! My feet scuffed along the pavement, I could feel my heart pounding and I had a heck of a time staying upright and pushing forward. I remember this feeling, it was the feeling I felt getting close to the finish line of a marathon. Maybe I started out way too swiftly! I took two minutes to walk it out, get the heart rate down and obtain a steady level of breathing. Then it was time to run again! Now only two minutes into it, I felt like I was bonking! Actually, I think I did bonk!
I had to call it a day for my run but I refuse to return home on that note. I veered off my running route, down a trail onto the Nose Creek Pathway and had a most mind-clearing, perking-up, soul-rejuvenating walk! I listened to the birds singing, I brushed the tops of the tall grass with the tips of my fingers, I smelled the wildflower-filled air, took long strides stretching my legs, made head circles, shoulder circles, arm circles! Returning home an hour or so later, I remember putting the key in the keyhole to unlock, slipping off my sneakers and stretching on my sofa!
Tomorrow is another day!
