It has been raining all this week, and I have not been running as I should have -Actually the training requires that I run 3x a week, Well I did run on Tuesday, and in fact in the Rain.! I keep telling myself that I need to be able to deal with it,if I have an ambition "TO-BE-A-RUNNER" and that too-here in Rain-City!But Tuesday was different ,Tuesday my knee started to hurt and my foot got sore,as it was soaked in the rain! BOO to the rains ! Really have I told you enough number of time how much I HATE HATE HATE the rains! I really do, even though it rains here ALL the time -I still HATE it-I will any day take SNOW over rain-Snow is still okay to deal with apart from Shoveling out the drive way,and bundling up-But that's besides the point.
Anyhow, long story short, I was supposed to run 3x where as I ran only once this week,that too on Tuesday. I was planning that I will run this morning as it being a Saturday I thought I would get in a LONG run in---well the Rain God's would not stop --and I was so upset I couldn't go,so we decided we'd go out after lunch to do some hope decor shopping. Guess what,just when we were about to leave-the Sun decided to come out and shine on us.I started getting really restless, while shopping, as I kept feeling that I was wasting my time shopping instead, when the rain has finally stopped,I should be out running,
This is me in my head "Yesterday you said tomorrow-and today it's not even raining-I mean could this shopping not have waited till you were done with the run?" Well thankfully we were done soon,BUT the husband decided that now is a good time to go pick up some small stuff groceries like milk etc-as it was on the way home-and I thought to myself this run is never gonna happen "You can dream on, BUT you are never gonna be able to go for a run" Anyhow that was over and done soon too! PHEW! When we finally reached home,I straight went to change and off I went for a run ! YAY ME!
Today -I had decided since I had some time on my hand I would do a longer run and see how I feel about it, well the interval was 10 minute run and 1 minute walk, and guess what? I was able to run the whole distance-yay-I was so proud and happy that I did decide to go in the end. And to top it,just when I was done and reaching home it started pouring again-So I was glad and caught on to the window,when it was clear and I could run! Today's total distance 5.57 kms!
So I think definitely-maybe I am getting the hang of running!
