Wednesdays are usually a rest day. But it was exceptionally beautiful weather-wise this morning and I got the bug to run a few miles before work. There was however one small (30 pound, furry) obstacle.
Duncan knew it was Wednesday and thought he could push down hard with his chin on my lap to refrain me from heading out for the run. He’s a smart dog. But I stayed strong and fought the guilt of leaving him for a whole 30 minutes of our morning time together. (We won’t mention that I shared my post-run fuel with him. Just a little piece of waffle.)
It was a GREAT run! Same 3 mile route as yesterday but faster and it felt a bit easier today too. It felt cooler and less humid.
And Duncan seems to feel bad about trying to keep me from running.
So let’s go with this little pearl of wisdom for today: There will be obstacles that pop up (or curl up) during the week that might try and keep you from getting your run in. Fight them! (even if they give you the big sad puppy dog eyes) You’ll feel so much better gettin’ your sweat on!
